    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Abstract Group 6 (W, Mo) metal carbide catalysts are promising alternatives to hydrodesulfurization (NiMo, CoMo) catalysts and group 10 (Pd) type catalysts in the deoxygenation of vegetable fats/oils. Herein, we report a comparison of carbon nanofiber-supported W2C and Mo2C catalysts on activity, selectivity, and stability for the hydrodeoxygenation of oleic acid to evaluate the catalytic potential for the upgrading of fat/oil feeds. W2C/CNF was more selective toward olefins, whereas Mo2C/CNF was more selective toward paraffins. This was related to the hydrogenation activities of the respective metal carbides. Mo2C/CNF showed higher activity and stability compared with W2C/CNF.
