Abstract

Group VI sulfides were synthesized via coprecipitation of elemental sulfur and metal hexacarbonyl and characterized with XRD, XPS, and TEM. These materials were then demonstrated as active catalysts for the acceptorless dehydrogenative coupling of neat ethanol to ethyl acetate, rapidly reaching equilibrium conversion and up to 90% selectivity. Other primary alcohols form the corresponding esters, while diols formed the corresponding cyclic ethers and oligomers.
