Process and dehydrogenation catalysts for the production of formaldehyde from methanol

HCHO is prepd. in high yield and selectivity by the dehydrogenation of MeOH in the presence of catalysts contg. metallic Na or >=1 Na compd. at 300-800 Deg. Na2CO3 was heated under H at 5 Deg/min and the temp. maintained during this heating process at 100 Deg, 500 Deg, 600 Deg, and 650 Deg for 3 h each, ending at 700 Deg, at which temp. the catalyst was maintained for 5 h. This catalyst (2 g) was charged into a reactor and contacted with 0.161 L/h of a 17% MeOH in N mixt., giving 20% MeOH conversion with HCHO formation in 65% selectivity. [on SciFinder (R)]
