A reasonable conversion was noted when reagent grade starting materials were used. When crude glycerol from a FAME production facility was used, the activity of the catalyst was severely compromised and the selectivity of the reaction changed. Several low-cost approaches to purifying the crude glycerol were attempted but none resulted in the formation of a glycerol substrate whose conversion under reaction conditions matched that of the pure reagent grade substrate.||Funding Details:||Irish Research Council for Science, Engineering and Technology||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Elsevier||Journal:||Catalysis Communications||Volume:||56||Start page:||72||End page:||75||Copyright (published version):||2014 Elsevier||Keywords:||Glycerol oxidation; Biorefinery; Catalyst||DOI:||10.1016/j.catcom.2014.06.026||Other versions:||http://www.journals.elsevier.com/catalysis-communications/||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
