Hydrogenation of Xylose over Platinum Group Catalysts

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

65 Scopus citations


Xylose was hydrogenated with ruthenium, rhodium, and palladium catalysts under a wide range of temperature, pressure, catalyst concentration, and agitation rates. The reaction is pseudo-first order and is controlled by the surface reaction between atomic hydrogen and unadsorbed xylose. Kinetic surface parameters were determined for the ruthenium catalyst.
