Hydrodeoxygenation of phenol, as model compound of bio-oil, was investigated over Pd catalysts, using formic acid as a hydrogen donor. The order of activity for deoxygenation of phenol with Pd catalysts was found to be: Pd/SiO2>Pd/MCM-41>Pd/CA>Pd/Al2O3>Pd/HY≈Pd/ZrO2≈Pd/CW>Pd/HSAPO-34>Pd/HZSM-5. The good performance of Pd/SiO2 is owing to its proper pore structure and large specific...
