High yield of propanols (85 %) is obtained from hydrogenolysis of 1,2-propanediol over the Rh[BOND]ReOx/SiO2 (Re/Rh=0.5) catalyst. In addition, the one-pot conversion of glycerol to propanols is also feasible. The reaction of the alkoxide species on Re with hydrogen species on the Rh metal surface is suggested in the proposed mechanism.
