(532as) Selective Electrochemical Hydrogenation of Cis, Cis – Muconic Acid on Transition Metals
AIChE Annual Meeting
2022 Annual Meeting
Catalysis and Reaction Engineering Division
Poster Session: Catalysis and Reaction Engineering (CRE) Division
Wednesday, November 16, 2022 - 3:30pm to 5:00pm
In this presentation, we will share DFT calculations of the detailed reaction thermochemistry of the possible elementary steps involved in the selective hydrogenation of cis, cis â muconic acid to form adipic acid on Pd(111) and Pt(111) surfaces. We will also provide a comparison of the reaction energetics on the catalytic surfaces with the corresponding energetics in the solution phase. Based on this comparison, we elucidate a thermodynamically preferred reaction pathway. The dependence of the preferred reaction pathway on the external cell potential and pH of the reaction environment will also be elucidated.
