Happy hydrogenolysis: The direct hydrogenolysis of erythritol over an Ir–ReOx/SiO2 catalyst is very effective for the production of biobutanediols. The selectivity to butanediols reached 48.0 % at 74.2 % conversion. Based on the production of erythritol by the fermentation of glucose and glycerol, erythritol hydrogenolysis will be promising in the production of biobutanediols.
