Selective deoxygenation of sugar polyols to α,ω-diols and other oxygen content reduced materials—a new challenge to homogeneous ionic hydrogenation and hydrogenolysis catalysis

Abstract

An oxygen atom on every carbon—this is the problem! While nature provides linear C3 to C6 building blocks in the form of sugar alcohols in large and renewable abundance, they are overfunctionalized for the purpose of most chemical applications. Selective deoxygenation by anthropogenic catalyst systems may be one answer to this challenge.
