Selective hydrogenation of cinnamaldehyde over carbon nanotube supported pd-ru catalyst

Carbon nanotube supported Pd, Ru and Pd-Ru catalysts have been prepared and tested with the hydrogenation of cinnamaldehyde as a probe reaction. It has been found that the cinnamaldehyde conversion and the selectivity towards the hydrogenation of C=O bond over Pd-Ru/PCNT catalyst could reach 56.6% and 79.1%, respectively, at 120oC and 5.0 MPa, which is better than Pd/PCNT and Ru/PCNT catalysts under the same reaction conditions. It is assumed that the better performance of Pd-Ru/PCNT catalyst for cinnamaldehyde hydrogenation may be due to the synergic effect of Pd and Ru metals or the promoting effect of Ru metal.
