Abstract

original image

Business is boehming: Boehmite-supported platinum nanoparticles and tungsten oxides exhibit high catalytic activity towards the selective hydrogenolysis of glycerol to 1,3-propanediol. The reaction furthermore proceeds efficiently in aqueous solution without the requirement for any additives. This solid catalyst also demonstrates excellent durability, maintaining high catalytic activity and selectivity during recycling experiments.
