Fig. 1: Routes for conversion of syngas to ethanol.

From: Single-pass transformation of syngas into ethanol with high selectivity by triple tandem catalysis

Fig. 1

Route A, traditional and direct route based on a single catalyst. Route B, indirect route including three processes, i.e., methanol synthesis, methanol carbonylation with CO and acetic acid (AA) hydrogenation. Route C, indirect route including three processes, i.e., syngas to dimethyl ether (DME), DME carbonylation with CO and methyl acetate (MA) hydrogenation. Route D, Tandem catalytic route of this work.
