A novel route for synthesis of γ-butyrolactone through the coupling of hydrogenation and dehydrogenation

Author affiliations

Abstract

A coupling process of the hydrogenation of maleic anhydride and the dehydrogenation of 1,4-butanediol has been invented for the synthesis of γ-butyrolactone over a Cu–Zn catalyst, realizing optimal hydrogen utilization and better energy efficiency.
