Selective and high yield transformation of glycerol to lactic acid using NNN pincer ruthenium catalysts

Author affiliations

Abstract

The conversion of glycerol selectively to lactic acid has been accomplished in high yields (ca. 90%) by using a NNN pincer–Ru catalyst. DFT explains the role of the Ru–P bond and sterics in favoring the catalysis.
