Abstract

In situ synthesis of ruthenium hydroxide catalysts on a microporous fiber-network structure of ceramic paper composites was achieved. The efficient catalytic oxidation of alcohol was investigated in a heterogeneous, multiphase gas-liquid-solid reaction. A simple papermaking technique and subsequent immersion in a ruthenium chloride solution allowed us to fabricate novel-concept microstructured catalysts. The paper-structured catalysts possess micropores ca. 30 μm in diameter with high porosity of ca. 90%. They exhibited much higher catalytic efficiency in the O2-mediated oxidation in toluene of benzyl alcohol to benzaldehyde in a fixed bed external loop reactor, as compared with conventional pellet- and bead-type solid catalysts. This excellent catalytic effect is possibly attributed to the porous paper composite microstructure like microreactors.
