Abstract

The internal OH group of 1,2-propanediol is selectively removed in the deoxygenation catalyzed by [{Cp*Ru(CO)2}2(μ-H)]+OTf - (1, Cp*=C3Me5, OTf=trifluoromethanesulfonate; see scheme). This reaction provides a model for deoxygenation of polyols derived from carbohydrates, for use in alternative, biomass-based feedstock applications. An ionic mechanism is proposed that involves the dihydrogen complex [Cp*Ru(CO)22-H2)]+.
