Efficient catalytic greenhouse gas-free hydrogen and aldehyde formation from aqueous alcohol solutions

Author affiliations

Abstract

Hydrogen is an ideal fuel candidate due to its clean combustion characteristics. Here we report an inexpensive and sustainable Mo-based, carbon-supported catalyst that generates H2 and the corresponding aldehyde from aqueous methanol or ethanol at high rates with negligible greenhouse gas co-production. The aldehyde coproducts lend value to this process without producing CO2.
