Towards developing structure/reactivity relationships for elevated temperature operation of ultra-selective aniline synthesis catalysts

The heterogeneously catalysed hydrogenation of nitrobenzene to synthesize aniline is a key reaction in the process chain to produce isocyanates, materials used in the production of polyurethanes.  Reflecting the complexity of large-scale isocyanate manufacture, the reaction is typically undertaken within an integrated chemical complex [1].  This scenario then provides the opportunity toā€¦
