Highly selective one-pot continuous synthesis of 2-methoxyethanol via hydrogenation of dimethyl oxalate on Cu/ZrO2 catalysts with balanced acid sites

Author affiliations

Abstract

The distribution of 2-methoxyethanol and ethylene glycol can be controlled by regulating the surface acidity of copper based zirconia catalysts for hydrogenation of dimethyl oxalate. The yield of 2-methoxyethanol can reach 68% due to the synergistic effect of the surface acid site and active copper site.
