Abstract

Mono and bimetallic catalysts of varying composition were prepared in order to examine any synergistic effect that may occur by mixing metals on a support. The test reactions were hydrogenation of 1, 3-butadiene and piperylene, a mixture of similar boiling 5-carbon olefins. Catalysts containing ruthenium and rhodium displayed some synergistic effects when supported on silica gel and 13X molecular sieves. The use of 5A molecular sieves as a support was used to examine the feasibility of selective hydrogenation as a separation tool for the piperylene mixture.
