Abstract Various Ni and Ni-Sn catalysts supported on TiO2 were prepared and the catalytic activities were evaluated for ethanol formation from aqueous acetic acid. Although catalytic activities of the Ni/TiO2 catalysts were limited, the addition of Sn improved the activity dramatically, and the optimum Ni/Sn ratio was approximately 1:1 (w/w). SnO2, the precursor of Sn, could not be reduced into metal Sn in pure form but did reduce into Ni-Sn alloys in the presence of NiO, the precursor of Ni. An...

Abstract Biomass-based ethanol or acetic acid can be produced by fermentation of saccharides following wood hydrolysis. Both high saccharide yield and concentration are essential for achieving an efficient hydrolysis process. However, there can be a trade-off between yield and concentration during semi-flow, hot-compressed water treatment, a candidate for wood hydrolysis. This trade-off is because the fast water flow rate is necessary for high saccharide yields, but the large amount of water dil...
