Continuous heterogeneous catalytic oxidation of primary and secondary alcohols in scCO2

Author affiliations

Abstract

A miniature catalytic reactor has been developed for the oxidation of alcohols with O2 in supercritical CO2. Particular attention has been given to ensuring good mixing of O2 and CO2 prior to contact with the substrate. The reactor was optimised using the oxidation of 2-octanol over 5% Pt + 1% Bi on Al2O3 and the mass balance was measured. The reactor was then evaluated for the oxidation of a series of secondary alcohols, and also the primary alcohol, 1-octanol.
