Supported nickel–rhenium catalysts for selective hydrogenation of methyl esters to alcohols

Author affiliations

Abstract

The addition of Re to Ni on TiO2 yields efficient catalysts for the hydrogenation of acids and esters to alcohols under mild conditions. Rhenium promotes the formation of atomically dispersed and sub-nanometre-sized bimetallic species interacting strongly with the oxide support.
