Abstract

Pt-catalyzed oxidn. of glucose to gluconate is studied in an oxygen-sparged batch reactor. In each expt. the reaction appears to be first order in glucose, and the rate const. is inversely proportional to the initial concn. of glucose. A kinetic model describing these exptl. observations is developed. The influence of the initial concns. of glucose, hydroxide ion, and O in the liq. phase, the concn. of catalyst, and temp. on the reaction-rate const. are described. The av. selectivity of the process is about 90%. [on SciFinder (R)]
