Modify M for diols: The industrially important monomer 1,6-hexanediol can be produced from hydrogenolysis of tetrahydropyran-2- methanol, which can be derived from acrolein or glycerol, using Re-modified Rh/C as a heterogeneous catalyst. Conventional catalysts such as M/C (M=Rh, Ru, Pd, or Pt), copper chromite and Raney nickel show poor activity and selectivity for this reaction.
