Abstract

High catalytic activity was achieved in the deoxygenation of stearic acid in dodecane in a temperature range of 270-300 °C under 17 bar helium over palladium on nanocomposite carbon Sibunit. Besides n-heptadecane, which was obtained previously in this reaction with palladium on activated carbon, n-pentadecane was also formed in significant amounts.
