Abstract
This paper reports about the gas-phase reduction of methyl levulinate to γ-valerolactone (GVL) via catalytic transfer hydrogenation using ethanol as the H-donor. In particular, high-surface-area, tetragonal zirconia has proven to be a suitable catalyst for the reaction. Under optimized conditions, the reaction is selective toward the formation of GVL (yield 70%). However, both the deposition of heavy oligomeric compounds over the catalytic...
