Patent Details

Applicant:
Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Roorkee 
Title:
Copper-zinc-magnesium catalyst for highly selective conversion of glycerol to 1,2-propanediol in liquid phase 
Inventor(s):
Prakash Biswas, Al Ameen A, Smita Mondal, Satayanarayana M. Pudi, and Nitin Naresh Pandhare 
Applicant:
Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Roorkee 
Application type:
Applied - 2017-05-17 
Application Number:
201711017272 
Applied at:
India 
Entered by:
Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Roorkee 
Abstract:
Present invention provides a novel copper-zinc-magnesium catalyst for selective conversion of glycerol to 1,2-propanediol. Complete glycerol conversion with >90% yield of 1,2-PDO is obtained over this catalyst at the mild reaction condition (4.5 MPa pressure and at 210°C). Therefore, the catalyst developed in the present invention is very promising for commercial application. The invention provides a cheaper and greener catalyst as compared to the catalysts used commercially.  

 
THE VISION
THE MISSION
ABOUT I-STEM
It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
