In the bulk of it: Bulky 1,2,4-tri(tert-butyl)cyclopentadienyl trioxorhenium was studied as a catalyst for the deoxydehydration of different vicinal diols. Under optimised conditions, a variety of vicinal diols were converted into olefins in good to excellent yields, and with minimal olefin isomerisation. Biomass-derived polyols were also converted into their corresponding olefinic products.
