Project summary

The result of the project is expected to be creation of new, more selective catalyst of amination of alcohols.

New catalysts will be prepared by the procedures used in industry.

The newly prepared catalysts will be tested in the two model reactions (amination of ethanol with methyl- and dimethylamine).

The most promising catalysts composition with higher selectivity will be identified.
