Abstract

The conversion of ethanol to 1,3-butadiene (1,3-BD) has been investigated over ZrO2 and ZnO containing magnesia silica oxides prepared by co-precipitation method at different Mg-to-Si molar ratios. The effect of reaction temperature and ethanol flow rate was investigated. The catalyst acidity was modified through the addition of alkali metals (Na, K and Li) to the final materials. Catalysts were characterised by nitrogen physisorption analysis, X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy with energy dispersive X-ray, temperature programmed desorption of ammonia, infrared spectroscopy and 29Si/(7Li) NMR spectroscopy. The catalytic results showed that the controlled reduction of catalyst acidity allows suppressing of ethanol dehydration, whilst increasing 1,3-BD selectivity. The best catalytic performance achieved 72 mol % for the combined 1,3-BD and acetaldehyde selectivity
