Abstract

We report the homogeneous catalytic hydrogenation of biomass derived furanic aldehydes to furfuryl alcohols using low loadings of PNP metal complexes under mild conditions. Our strategy represents an efficient and selective approach to the direct hydrogenation of furan derivatives to promising platform chemicals.
