Access to cellulose: Carbon nanofibers grown over Ni supported on γ-Al2O3 act as efficient catalysts for the one-pot conversion of cellulose to sugar alcohols, owing to the enhanced accessibility of the water-insoluble substrate towards the active catalytic sites. The new catalyst design concept yields unprecedented results for selective cellulose conversion using inexpensive Ni catalysts.
