My name is Su Ying-Chou. I’m twenty-five years old and studying in PhD program in National Cheng Kung University. I have great interest in industrial application, polymer science and catalyst especially. Riding motorcycle to travel is my favorite.


The novel hydrogenation catalysts, palladium (Pd) immobilized in nickel wire (Pd/Niw), were prepared via exterior magnetic field following reduction reaction in this study. Characteristic and the morphology were identified by using X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy, respectively. Amount of Pd in Pd/Niw was in the range of 13 wt.% to 15 wt.% from inductively coupled plasma-atomic emission spectroscopy measurement. The particle size of Pd in Pd/Niw was ca. 20-100 nm via high-resolution transmission electron microscopy observation. The saturation magnetization of Pd/Niw catalyst was 37.25 emu/g after PPMS-16T measurement. Furthermore, as the Pd/Niw was acted as catalyst for the hydrogenation of bis (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), 100% conversion of DEHP was obtained at 180 ℃ and 1000 psi. At the optimum condition 100% conversion of dimethyl terephthalate (DMT) and bisphenol A (BPA) were also achieved  This novel hydrogenation catalysts has easy manufacture with low cost and has potential for commercialization in future.

Audience Take away:

•    We can turn some aromatic compound to saturated structure completely.
•    The catalyst in this study has industrial potential.
•    The synthesis method is simple..
