    Abstract

    Poly (styrene-co-divinylbenzene) amine functionalized polymer supported ruthenium nanoparticles catalyst is evaluated first time in selective hydrogenation of xylose to xylitol. The catalyst Ru/PSN is characterized by different techniques such as X-ray powder diffraction, transmission electron microscopy and CO chemisorption. To develop our understanding for the activity of catalyst Ru/PSN, xylose hydrogenation experiments were carried out using catalyst of Ru/PSN with different ruthenium loading (from 1.0% to 3.0%), at different temperatures (from 100 to 140 C) and hydrogen pressures (from 30 to 55 bar). For deactivation test, the catalyst of Ru/PSN recovered from the product solution was reused up to the four times.
