Abstract

Xylose has been hydrogenated with Raney nickel under a wide range of pressure, temperature, catalyst concentration, and agitation rates. The reaction follows a pseudo-first-order course with a surface-reaction-controlling step between atomically adsorbed hydrogen and adsorbed xylose at 100° and unadsorbed xylose at higher temperatures.
