A green approach to ethyl acetate: quantitative conversion of ethanol through direct dehydrogenation in a Pd-Ag membrane reactor

Keywords

Ethyl acetate

Abstract

​The conversion of ethanol to ethyl acetate and hydrogen was achieved using a pincer–Ru catalyst in a Pd–Ag membrane reactor. Near quantitative conversions and yields could be achieved without the need for acid or base promoters or hydrogen acceptors (see scheme).
