Abstract

Combination of active carbon supported Ru catalyst with a cation exchange resin (Amberlyst 15) exhibited much higher activity in glycerol hydrogenolysis under mild reaction conditions such as 393 K and 4 MPa H2, than other metal-acid bifunctional catalyst systems using various zeolites, sulfated zirconia, H2WO4, and liquid H2SO4.
