Abstract
Aldol condensation is a key C—C coupling reaction for upgrading of biomass-derived oxygenates to fuels and chemicals. Here, we investigate the effects of added water on the condensation of cyclopentanone (CPO) on hydrophobized MgO catalysts. We have found that the role of water strongly depends on the degree of hydrophobic functionalization of the MgO surface. That is, on a nonfunctionalized (hydrophilic) high-surface-area MgO catalyst, the rate...
