[Epub ahead of print]For the first time, we demonstrated two integrated processes for the direct synthesis of dodecanol or 2,4,8-trimethylnonane (a jet fuel range C12 branched alkane) with methyl isobutyl ketone (MIBK) which can be derived from lignocellulose. The reactions were carried out in two-bed continuous flow reactors. In the first bed, MIBK was selectively converted to a mixture of C12 alcohol and ketone. Over the Pd modified magnesium-aluminium hydrotalcite (Pd-MgAl-HT) catalyst, high total carbon yield (73. Read More
