Abstract

The irreversible formation of carbonate deposits on CeO2 leads to complete switching of catalytic selectivity resulting in the formation of benzene in gas-phase oxidation of benzyl alcohol. By integrating experimental spectra and theoretical calculations, we expect that such a shift is derived from further decarbonylation of benzaldehyde via easy trapping of CO fragments by surface carbonate species.
