High in sugar: High-yield production of sugar alcohols (68 %) is demonstrated in the hydrolytic hydrogenation of cellulose over Ru/AC (AC=activated carbon) catalyst under low H2 pressure (<1 MPa) without soluble catalysts and with a mix-milling pretreatment. This pretreatment selectively leads to acceleration of the rate-determining hydrolysis step to maximize the yield of sugar alcohols.
