  • Patent number: 4302397
    Abstract: A copper chromite catalyst having improved activity is prepared by forming a basic copper ammonium chromate complex in a known manner. The complex is decomposed by sintering at temperatures near C. to yield a copper chromite catalyst of improved activity. The copper chromite catalyst is especially useful in liquid phase production of furfuryl alcohol from furfural by hydrogenation. The hydrogenation reaction takes place at low pressure, e.g. under 30 atmospheres, due to the increased activity of the catalyst.
