The vapor-phase dehydrogenation of 1 -butanol to butyraldehyde was studied in a fixed bed of catalyst from 250° to 360° C. Of all the catalysts studied during preliminary investigation, the one containing 90% copper, 8% chromia, and 2% carbon supported on pumice was best, with high activity and selectivity. The data are expressed in the form of a first-order irreversible reaction rate equation. Single-site surface reaction (hydrogen adsorbed) is the rate-controlling mechanism at all the temperatures studied. The rate data obtained in the entire range of experimental conditions fit the rate equation based on this mechanism with a standard deviation of ± 22.8%.
