Catalysts based on Pt and Rh modified with Sn(C4H9)4 were studied in thehydrogenation of 4-methoxyacetophenone. The selectivity to 1-(4-methoxyphenyl)ethanol was close to 100% at Sn/(Pt,Rh) = 1.0, however thecatalytic activity decreased drastically. With respect to the balance betweenactivity and selectivity the catalyst PtSnOM (Sn/Pt=0.4) showed the bestperformance.
