Abstract: Two Al2O3-supported alkaline earth metal oxide catalysts (MgO and BaO) were contacted with valeric acid at 250 °C. Each formed amounts of 5-nonanone (BaO more than MgO). A significant deposition of hydrocarbonaceous material onto the catalyst surface is noted. This adsorbed material is characterised using TGA and FTIR and relates to a carboxylate species.
