Reductive alkylation, a new sensation: Reductive alkylation of (poly)glycerol is realized for the first time with bio-sourced and/or cheap carboxylic acids under mild conditions by using a recyclable catalytic system. The corresponding 1-O-alkyl(poly)glycerol monoethers are obtained in good yield and selectivity, and the catalysts can be recycled three times with no loss of activity, opening a new access to glycerol ethers on a large scale.
