Octanoic acid (OA), as model reactant, was hydroconverted in a flow through reactor at 21 bar total pressure and 240-380 C over various copper catalysts composed with indium or its neighbors in the periodic table (gallium, tin, thallium and cadmium) for comparison. The In-doped sample was proven to be much more advantageous than the other bimetallic analogs tested.
