Abstract: The activity and selectivity of a model Au/TiO2 catalyst was studied in the selective oxidation of glycerol as a function of the purity of the glycerol source. 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.
