Selective Hydrogenation of 2-Methylfuran and 2,5-Dimethylfuran Over Atomic Layer Deposited Platinum Catalysts on Multiwalled Carbon Nanotube and Alumina Supports
2-Methylfuran (2MF) and 2,5-dimethylfuran (DMF) were hydrogenated in the vapor phase to the corresponding tetrahydrofurans, linear 2-ketones, and alcohols over Pt nanoparticles supported on multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) and alumina by atomic layer deposition. The hydrogenation behavior of sub-nanometer Pt deposited on alumina was influenced by the acidity of the support. Relative to a commercial Pt/C catalyst, the Pt/MWCNT catalyst was found to contain similarly sized Pt nanoparticles that display a broader size distribution and significantly more n-alkanes than oxygenates during hydrogenation of these alkyl-substituted furans.
