Ir-Beta zeolite as a heterogeneous catalyst for the one-pot transformation of citronellal to menthol

Author affiliations

Abstract

Beta zeolites, impregnated with Ir, catalyze the one-pot full conversion of citronellal to menthol by consecutive acid-catalyzed cyclization and Ir-catalyzed hydrogenation, with 95% selectivity for the menthol isomers, of which 75% is the desired (−)-menthol.
