Partially
reduced C6 polyols are potentially valuable precursors to polymers,
surfactants, and solvents [1]. Sugars are a renewable feedstock for the
production of C6 polyols, but typical catalytic hydrogenolysis
processes are unselective towards C-OH bond cleavage at different positions and
do not preserve the sugar’s stereocenters. In mso-themecolor:text1">contrast, Tomishige and co-workers recently reported on
the selective cleavage of cis-vicinal OH groups of a variety of methyl
glycosides over a ReOx-Pd/CeO2 catalyst [2]. This
reaction step produces dideoxy sugars in which the chirality of the remaining
C-OH groups is preserved.

Here, we demonstrate the regio- and stereo-
selective synthesis of hexane-tetrols and hexane-triols from methyl glycosides over
supported metal catalysts 107%;font-family:" times new roman>(Scheme 1). First, the above method
is used to synthesize dideoxy sugars from sugar feedstocks. Next, these intermediates
are hydrolyzed and hydrogenated to produce hexane-tetrols and hexane-triols. The
reaction mechanism proceeds through initial methoxy bond hydrolysis to form a mixture
of intermediates. Different reaction intermediates are formed depending on the structure of the
feedstock. Hydrogenation of these intermediates over Pt/SiO2 produces
the final hexane-tetrols and -triols. 2,3-Dideoxy substrates are more reactive
than 3,4-dideoxy substrates due to the electron withdrawing nature of the C2-OH
group. 3,4-Dideoxy substrates also undergo aldose-ketose isomerization
at higher temperatures which decreases the stereoselectivity due to scrambling
of the C2-OH stereocenter. Stereoselectivity can be increased by introducing
an acid catalyst to facilitate hydrolysis at lower temperature.
