(24c) 1,6-Hexanediol Synthesis from Cellulose
The THFDM is converted into 1,2,6 hexanetriol and then HDO in the final step through a dehydration-hydrogenation mechanism on a bifunctional Pt-based catalysts in over 90% HDO selectivity (70% HDO yield). We will show that the active catalytic acid phase for the dehydration, a BrÃ¸nsted acid site, is generated on the oxophilic support through hydrogen spillover from the Pt.
