Condensation with hydrodeoxygenation of butanal is accomplished over Pd-supported catalysts. Higher yield of C6–9 iso-alkane is achieved over well-balanced metal-sites and acidity-basicity. Efficient production of transportation fuel from butanal is possible over Pd/ZrO2 due to amphoteric character.
