ethanol catalyst


A catalyst made from silver nitrate powder, zirconyl nitrate and silica can be used to convert aqueous ethanol into acetaldehyde. 1 Scientists have also developed an electrified catalyst made from copper and carbon, which can be powered using low-cost off-peak or renewable energy, to convert carbon dioxide and water molecules into ethanol. 2 3

Summary Researchers at Argonne National Laboratory say they’ve found a breakthrough way to recycle carbon dioxide into energy-rich ethanol fuel. The secret is an electrified catalyst made from copper and carbon, which the researchers say can be powered using low-cost off-peak or renewable energy.
Scientists Turn Carbon Dioxide Into Ethanol | CO2 to Ethanol

The catalyst used is solid silicon dioxide coated with phosphoric (V) acid. The reaction is reversible. Only 5% of the ethene is converted into ethanol at each pass through the…

Ethanol meets the catalyst under high temperature (370°C, or 698°F) and pressure (300 pounds per square inch). It then rapidly converts to products containing more than 70 percent C5+ ketones....

Summary By an electrochemical reaction, this catalyst breaks down carbon dioxide and water molecules and selectively reassembles the broken molecules into ethanol under an external electric field. Previous attempts at this process often aren’t very good at fully converting the carbon dioxide.
A new catalyst can make ethanol out of carbon dioxide

In the first step of a multi-step ethanol-to-jet-fuel process developed by DOE’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory, a catalyst is used to convert ethanol into butene-rich C3+ olefins, important intermediates that…
