Abstract: 
Hydrogen as a clean, efficient, and sustainable energy has attracted considerable attention in recent years. hydrogen production from aqueous-phase reforming (APR) of biomass-derived alcohols is preferable to other methods because of its wide renewable resource, mild reaction conditions, and low processing cost. In this paper, the progress in the APR process of different biomass-derived alcohols for H2 production is reviewed, and the reaction mechanisms are briefly discussed for different catalysts. Pt-based catalysts exhibit high H2 selectivity but low conversion of the alcohols. Ni-based catalysts exhibit high activity and conversion but low H2 selectivity and yield.

The authors have reviewed the literature on the APR of various feedstocks including glycerol, ethylene glycol, ethanol, and other alcohols. The authors also introduce APR by describing several advantages of the process.

生物质衍生醇类水相重整制氢研究进展

概要:氢气作为一种清洁、高效的可持续能源,近年来得到了广泛关注。水相重整技术以生物质衍生醇类制备氢气,具有来源广泛、反应条件温和、运行成本较低等优点,相较于其他制氢方法更有优势。本文详细阐述生物质衍生醇类水相重整制氢的研究进展,同时讨论不同催化剂的反应机理。Pt系催化剂表现出较高的氢气选择性,但是醇类转化率较低。Ni系催化剂反应活性和转化率均较高,但仍存在氢气选择性和氢气产率较低等问题。
