Say no to O: The catalytic deoxygenation of biomass-derived feedstocks (sugars, sugar alcohols) is a promising pathway towards a sustainable chemical production economy. The development of efficient synthetic protocols for oxygen removal is highly desirable to derive chemical building blocks and fuels. A major challenge is selection/design of effective catalysts. This Highlight appraises the hurdles and opportunities for deoxygenation of biomass feedstocks.
