Paper Title:
Direct Convert Glycerol into Alcohols by Disproportionation Reaction
  Abstract

The disproportionation reaction of glycerol over NaOH was reported in this article. The effects of reaction temperature, glycerol to NaOH mol ratio, glycerol concentration in calcium carbonate, and reaction time were investigated. Under the optimum conditions, 82.6% of glycerol conversion with 44.6% of total alcohol selectivity (propylene glycol, ethylene glycol, methanol, and ethanol) was obtained.
