Abstract

Palladium catalysts on a bone black support are well suited for the catalytic oxidation with air of di-0-iso-propylidene hexoses in aqueous alkaline medium. The authors studied the application of these catalysts to the catalytic oxidation with air of 1,2-0-iso-propylidene- alpha -D-glucofuranose and D-glucose. The rate of oxidation plotted against temperature and concentration yields curves passing through a maximum. It was found that monocarbonic acid was obtained from these compounds with a yield close to 90%, but only if the concentration of the substrate was high, since in dilute solutions oxidation proceeded further.
