Catalytic oxidative dehydrogenation of malic acid to oxaloacetic acid

Author affiliations

Abstract

Here we report the oxidative dehydrogenation of malic acid to oxaloacetic acid, a key precursor in the fabrication of amino acids, over Pt–Bi/C catalysts. Under optimized conditions, we discovered that OAA was selectively produced with up to 60% conversion (i.e. 60% yield). The recurrent unwanted decarboxylation of OAA to pyruvic acid was circumvented by successfully conducting the catalytic reaction at 25 °C. A comparison with the classical Fenton oxidation reaction is discussed.
