Abstract: front page image
(EN)The disclosure provides methods of converting a lower alcohol (e.g., ethanol) to a higher alcohol (e.g., butanol) in the presence of a water stable transition metal catalyst comprising a Group VIII transition metal and a polydentate nitrogen donor ligand. The methods described in the disclosure can be carried out in the presence of water and achieve high purities of the higher alcohols.
(FR)La présente invention concerne des procédés de conversion d'un alcool court (par exemple l'éthanol) en un alcool long (par exemple le butanol) en présence d'un catalyseur à base de métal de transition stable dans l'eau comprenant un métal de transition du Groupe VIII et un ligand donneur azoté polydentate. Les procédés décrits dans la présente invention peuvent être mis en œuvre en présence d'eau et atteindre des puretés élevées en alcools longs.
