The one-pot synthesis of menthol from citral in a continuous mode was investigated over three different types of extrudates, namely Ni supported on H-Beta-38 and extruded with attapulgite, Ni supported on attapulgite and extruded with H-Beta-38, and the extrudates, which were shaped after deposition of Ni on both H-Beta-38 and attapulgite in the powder form. These composite catalysts were characterized by X-ray diffraction, transmission and scanning electron microscopy, temperature-programmed reduction of H2, mechanical strength, and pyridine adsorption desorption. These three types of extrudates exhibited different metal particle sizes and acidity. The most promising catalyst in the one-pot menthol synthesis was Ni supported first on H-Beta-38 and then extruded with attapulgite giving a 45% yield of menthols in a trickle bed reactor. This catalyst exhibited 10 nm nickel particles and a rather high amount of strong Brønsted acid sites.
