A Fe5C2 nanocatalyst for the preferential synthesis of ethanol via dimethyl oxalate hydrogenation

Author affiliations

Abstract

A Fe-based catalyst exhibits extremely high selectivity (89.6%) besides excellent catalytic activity in gas-phase dimethyl oxalate hydrogenation. The ethanol formation occurs via hydrogenation of methyl acetate instead of ethylene glycol over the active species Fe5C2.
