Turn sugar into oil: The deoxygenation reaction of sugar moieties is important for the conversion of biomass into chemicals and fuels. The methyltrioxorhenium-catalyzed deoxydehydration reaction was successfully applied to this purpose using another alcohol as solvent/reductant. The reaction was highly stereospecific, affording linear polyene products from C4–C6 sugar alcohols and aromatic compounds from C4–C6 sugars.
