The screening of intermediates in a ruthenium and iridium ion-catalyzed gas-phase reaction of ethanol converting to butanol by ICP-MS/MS

Author affiliations

Abstract

The metal ion-catalyzed (Ru+, Ir+) reactions of ethanol converting to butanol have been studied via ICP-MS/MS. The detection of organic small molecule intermediates (acetaldehyde and butyraldehyde) was achieved in both Ru+/C2H5OH and Ir+/C2H5OH systems. Several metal-adduct intermediates were observed in these reactions, improving the understanding of the reaction mechanism of ethanol transformation. The possible formation pathways of intermediates have been discussed.
