Abstract

Our study of a (WO3)3/TiO2(110) model mixed oxide catalyst shows that this system is an extremely efficient for dehydration of alcohols, effectively lowering the energy barrier as much as possible for an endothermic reaction without yielding a significant concentration of other side products.
