Abstract A process for hydrogenating benzoic acid features that the fused benzoic acid is in contact with hydrogen at 120-200 deg.C and 1-12 MPa under the existance of Pd/C catalyst and Ni-contained non-crystal alloy cocatalyst. Its advantages include less generation of CO, high catalytic activity, less consumption of Pd/C catalyst and high productivity.
