Manipulating Catalytic Pathways: Deoxygenation of Palmitic Acid on Multifunctional Catalysts 
The mechanism of the catalytic reduction of palmitic acid to n-pentadecane at 260 degrees C in the presence of hydrogen over catalysts combining multiple functions has been explored. The reaction involves rate-determining reduction of the carboxylic group of palmitic acid to give hexadecanal, which is catalyzed either solely by Ni or synergistically by Ni and the ZrO2 support. The latter route involves adsorption of the carboxylic acid group at an oxygen vacancy of ZrO2 and abstraction of the al...    »
