Description

Glycerol, a byproduct of biodiesel production, can, in the presence of a catalyst, undergo partial deoxygenation to generate value-added products. Several homogeneous precatalysts are known to be active for glycerol deoxygenation but less is known about the speciation of these precatalysts under the operative reactions. We will present evidence for the formation of nanoparticles, an analysis of which reaction conditions are promoting the formation of the nanoparticles, and a comparison of isolated nanoparticle precatalysts with their homogeneous precatalyst analogs.
