Patent CA2931633, US2017072388, WO2016197237
Publication year: 2017

A catalyst for the carbonylation of dimethyl ether to methyl acetate. The catalyst comprises a zeolite, such as a mordenite zeolite, at least one Group IB metal, such as copper, and/or at least one Group VIII metal, such as iron, and at least one Group IIB metal, such as zinc. Such a catalyst with combined metals provides enhanced catalytic activity, improved stability, and improved selectivity to methyl acetate, and does not require a halogen promoter, as compared to a metal-free or copper only zeolite.

Patent (Russia) RU 2144020
Publication year: 2000

FIELD: organic chemistry, chemical technology. SUBSTANCE: invention relates to methods of hydrogenation of acetylene alcohols that are intermediate organic compounds used in pharmaceutical and perfume industry. Selective hydrogenation of acetylene alcohols to the corresponding ethylene alcohols is carried out with hydrogen at concentration of acetylene alcohol from 0.22 to 0.88 mole/l at 60-90 C using micellar palladium-containing catalyst at amount from 1.66 to 6.66 g/l. The catalyst is prepared by immobilization of palladium acetate on polystyrene- -poly-4-vinylpyridine block-copolymer by reduction of immobilized Pd(II) to Pd(0), applying of obtained palladium nanoparticles on aluminium oxide and treatment by ultrasonic oscillation at intensity 2.5-3 Wt/cm2, frequency 22 kHz for 1-4 min. EFFECT: improved method of hydrogenation, increased yield and effective rate of the synthesis.
