Furthermore, it could also prevent the formed 1, 2-PD from consecutive hydrogenolysis to propanols.
As the temperature increased from 453 to 543 K, the glycerol conversion monotonically increased from 8.25% to 95.55%, but the 1, 2-PD selectivity declined from 87.64 % to 35.65 % with the increase of ethylene glycol and 1- propanol. This indicated that higher temperature would lead to the excessive hydrogenation of 1, 2-PD into other alcohols such as 1-propanol, ethylene glycol and other degradation products.
