The present invention relates to the field of chemical technology, more narrowly to catalytic processes, in particular to catalytic hydrogenation.

Currently, the catalytic hydrogenation is the main industrial method of recovery of nitro compounds, unsaturated and aromatic compounds, various functional groups such as carbonyl, nitrile, etc.

As hydrogenation catalysts use a wide variety of media, the active components of the catalyst and promoters.

The most widespread as the media in the processes of hydrogenation of the obtained activated carbon, metal oxides, primarily Al2About3, TiO2and other, silica, zeolites, etc. Carriers are made in the form of powder, granules, tablets; in the last decade, widespread block, cell and tissue holders.

As an active part of the catalysts most often used metals of the VIII group of the periodic system (the group of iron, ruthenium and osmium), the main place among them is occupied by Ni and Pd. The hydrogenations are heavily influenced by the promoters and the environment of the reaction.

Especially in the reactivity of restorable connections lead to significant differences in the composition of the catalysts used in ishemic for hydrogenation. Therefore, the number of catalysts a wide spectrum of action is very limited. These include the catalyst proposed in patent 2095136 RF (prototype). It consists of powdered media (activated carbon, aluminum oxide, silicon oxide, and others), on the surface of which is coated with a mixture containing 0.08-0.5% Nickel, 0.05 to 0.7% of palladium and 0.3% of iron (all by weight of the carrier). The disadvantage of this catalyst is its disintegration during operation and, as a consequence, mechanical losses, reduced activity and contamination of the reaction products.

The aim of the present invention is a highly efficient catalyst for the hydrogenation of mono - and policetraining in amines, unsaturated and aromatic substances in linear and circular marginal compounds, carbonyl and carboxyl compounds to alcohols, hydrogenation of rosin, etc.

Features of the catalyst of liquid-phase catalytic hydrogenation of molecular hydrogen on the catalyst comprising metals of group VIII, characterized in that it is modular medium low density (BNP) and high porosity (porosity of more than 90%) are made of aluminum oxide by the method of duplicating a polyurethane matrix (soaking her slip Al2About3the content of Al2About3not less than 95% and subsequent annealing), and then at him the placenta is subsequently applied layers γ -Al2About3or sulfated metal oxide of group IV and then the metal palladium. Content γ-Al2About3in the catalyst is >6%, the content of sulfated oxides of titanium or zirconium 8-9%, the content of metallic palladium is equal to 0.16-3,7%.

The use of highly porous honeycomb catalyst designed as a single block or set of blocks, which passes through a gas-liquid flow solution reducible compounds and hydrogen, on the one hand, due to the developed surface provides a high rate of hydrogenation, and on the other, due to the high mechanical strength almost completely eliminates grinding and entrainment of the catalyst.

Before the experiments for the hydrogenation of preparing the catalyst according to the following technology.

Preparation of polyurethane foam impregnated by immersing it in the slip (Al2About3up to 25% water and 5% additives) and exposing cyclical effects (compression-tension). Excess slurry is removed by release of the sample to a predetermined weight. Drying the impregnated billet is carried out at a temperature of 100-120°and firing in an air atmosphere at 1450°C.

For the deposition of aluminum oxide - γ-Al2About3use a solution of hydrated aluminum nitrate [Al(NO3)3·N2O]. The sample manufactured by the th of BNP, immersed in a hot solution of hydrated and after extracting the dried first at room temperature and then in an oven at 90-100°C. is Applied sequentially two or more layers γ-Al2About3to the mass of the active layer of the γ-Al2About3was not less than 6% of the total mass of the catalyst. The firing is carried out at 500-550°to ensure that the aluminum oxide has been preserved in the γform.

The mass of the active layer of the γ-Al2About3must be at least 6% of the total mass

Application of solid acid and supercyclic catalysts is carried out in two stages. At first as a secondary coating is applied to the oxides of titanium or zirconium. The method of applying these oxides similar to that described for aluminum oxide. As the source of solutions to obtain titanium oxide used tetrabutoxide, and zirconium oxide - zirconium nitrate.

In the second stage sulfated oxide receive, immersing the carrier in a 1 n solution of sulfuric acid; after removal of the media and runoff of excess acid its calcined at 600-650°C. the Total number of marked sulfated oxides 8-9 wt.%.

The application of metallic palladium is also carried out in several stages. The resulting carrier is impregnated with a palladium nitrate solution for one or more operations, dried and calcined for p is slorenia nitrate to oxide. The palladium oxide restore molecular hydrogen in the environment of alcohol immediately before the experiments for the hydrogenation of nitro compounds at room or elevated temperature.
