Abstract gamma-Valerolactone (GVL) has been catalytically transformed into pentanoic acid (PA), a molecule of growing importance in the search for alternative green fuels and chemical feedstocks. The GVL conversion process goes through ring-opening and hydrogenation reactions over well dispersed Pd-NbCe oxides on an activated carbon support.
