A Cu–Zn–Al catalyst was prepared by the co-precipitation method and was applied for the hydrogenation of dimethyl adipate.
Selectivity to 1,6-hexanediol exceeding 99% was obtained at 99% conversion of dimethyl adipate. The catalyst was highly efficient
and stable. The influences of the calcination temperature of the catalyst were studied.
