Electrocatalytic glucose hydrogenation: The hydrogenation of glucose to sorbitol or 2-deoxysorbitol in neutral media has been studied on solid metal electrodes. Three groups of catalysts can be identified from the periodic table, with regard to the main reaction products: (1) early transition metals and platinum group metals (hydrogen formation); (2) late transition metals and Al (sorbitol formation); and (3) post-transition metals, as well as Zn, and Cd (sorbitol and 2-deoxysorbitol formation).
