C−H activation of methanol and ethanol and C−C coupling into diols by zinc-indium-sulfide under visible-light

Abstract

Herein, an environmentl-friendly CoP/Zn2In2S5 catalyst is reported as a visible-light photocatalyst for selective activation of the α-C−H bond in methanol to generate ethylene glycol with selectivity as high as 90%. The catalytic sysmtem also illustrated the first exmaple of visible-light-driven dehydrogenative coupling of ethanol to 2,3-butanediol.
