Base free, one-pot synthesis of lactic acid from glycerol using a bifunctional Pt/Sn-MFI catalyst

Author affiliations

Abstract

Under base free and mild reaction conditions, 80.5% selectivity of lactic acid (LA) was achieved at 89.8% conversion of glycerol using a bifunctional Pt/Sn-MFI catalyst. In the tandem reaction pathway, selective oxidation of glycerol to glyceraldehyde (GLA) and dihydroxyacetone (DHA) was cascaded with Lewis acid catalyzed isomerization of GLA/DHA into LA.
