Conversion of Acetate to Ketenylidene (image) University of Texas at Austin, Texas Advanced Computing Center Share Print E-Mail Caption This shows the conversion of acetate to ketenylidene at the perimeter site of the Au/TiO2 catalyst. The acetate, which adsorbs on TiO2 , undergoes dehydrogenation (oxidation) and the deoxygenation to form ketenylidene on the gold. Credit J. Am. Chem. Soc., 2012, 134 (33), pp 13569-13572.
