Transmission of alcohols achieved: A method for the direct transfer of the CHOH function from simple polyols to alkenes has been developed. In a dual-reactor system, successive iridium-catalyzed dehydrogenations and decarbonylations of polyols such as glycerol and sorbitol generates a low pressure of syngas, which is directly used in ex situ alkene hydroformylation.
