Screening of four commercial catalysts (Pt/Al2O3, Pt/SiO2, Pd/Al2O3, and Pd/SiO2) and four acidic additives (hydrochloric, tungstic, phosphotungstic, and silicotungstic acids) shows that the combination of a platinum hydrogenation catalyst with tungsten containing acidic additives yields 1,3-propanediol from aqueous glycerol. The performance of...
