Transfer hydrogenation of cellulose to sugar alcohols over supported ruthenium catalysts

Author affiliations

Abstract

Ru/C catalysts are active for the conversion of cellulose using 2-propanol or H2 of 0.8 MPa as sources of hydrogen, whereas the Ru/Al2O3 catalyst is inactive in both reactions, indicating that the Ru/C catalysts are remarkably effective for the cellulose conversion.
