New composites based on [RhMo6O24H6]3− (RhMo6) heteropolyanion supported on pillared (PILC), heterostructured (PCH) and functionalized(PILC-F) and (PCH-F) systems based on clays were prepared, characterized and tested as catalysts in the liquid-phase hydrogenation of cinnamaldehyde. The original phases and supported systems were characterized using several techniques such as powder X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy and energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (SEM?EDS), Raman microprobe, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopies (XPS), thermogravimetry and differential thermal analyses (TG-DSC), temperature programmed reduction (TPR), and textural analysis (BET method), which confirmed their functionalization, physicochemical modification and nature of Mo adsorbed species. Active acidic, basic and redox sites were determined by temperature programmed surface reaction (TPSR). Mo loading reached 7 wt% for the system RhMo6/PCH-F and 3 wt% for the system RhMo6/PILC-F, while unfunctionalized clay systems showed values of 1 wt% of Mo. The catalytic performance showed that PCH-based composites were the most active and reached up to 56% conversion at 360 min. reaction when tested in the liquid-phase cinnamaldehyde hydrogenation. The selectivity for all the systems was mainly toward hydrocinnamic aldehyde (HCAL) and reached 77% for the RhMo6/PCH-F catalyst at 25% conversion.
