Abstract: Chromite catalysts have been studied with and with-out modifiers for lactonlzation of 1, 4 butanediol. The reaction on majority of the catalyst proceeds giving rise to cyclodehydration product, tetrahydrofuran (THF) mainly rather than cyclodehydrogenation product of y-butyrolactone (γ-BL). The lactonization of 1, 4-butanediol increases when the zinc chromite catalyst is modified with Pt metal. Few methods are discussed regarding the preparation and modification of the catalysts and their effects in selectivity from THF to γ-BL.
