High catalytic activity of silicalite in gas-phase ketonisation of propionic acid

Author affiliations

Abstract

Amorphous silica and crystalline silicalite (MFI structure) are demonstrated to be active and environmentally benign catalysts for propionic acid ketonisation at 450–500 °C to form 3-pentanone. The silicalite is particularly efficient, and its ketonisation selectivity is increased by base modification probably through generation of silanol nests.
