Localized phosphide destroys cellulose: Carbon-supported amorphous nickel phosphide (ANP) allows the transformation of cellulose into sugar alcohols (especially sorbitol) to proceed efficiently. ANP is generated in situ from its crystalline form during the reaction. The high activity of the catalysts is attributed to the in situ-generated ANP phase. Modification of the carbon support improves the stability of the catalyst and reduces leaching of the catalyst.
