Hello MTO: Efficient and environmentally responsible conversion methods are needed to deal with excess glycerol production. The catalytic conversion of glycerol to allyl alcohol under neat conditions is catalyzed by methyltrioxorhenium (MTO). The yields of volatile products and selectivity for allyl alcohol are very good. Mechanistic studies reveal transfer hydrogenation via bifunctional catalysis.
