Titania-Zirconia Coatings of a Capillary Microreactor for the Selective
Hydrogenation of 2-Methyl-3-Butyn-2-ol Using a PdZn/TixZr1-xO2 Catalyst: Stability, Effect of the Catalyst’s Activation Conditions and a Kinetic Study
The introduction of microcapillary reactors with catalytic coatings into fine organic synthesis and pharmaceutical industry allows to comply with strict environmental requirements and control of selectivity in successive reactions . Multicrystalline titania-zirconia oxide coatings have increased thermal stability as compared to titanium dioxide coatings . The aim of the present work is to study stability of titania-zirconia with embedded PdZn nanoparticles in selective hydrogenation of 2-methyl-3-butyn-2-ol, the effect of activation conditions on their catalytic properties and to perform the kinetic interpretation of the data obtained.
