We have investigated the reaction network and kinetics for the conversion of triglycerides to hydrocarbons on supported Pt catalysts in batch reaction with and without the addition of hydrogen. Both the metal and the support are active for triglyceride conversion with competitive surface adsorption influencing the reaction rate.
