With a little H2elp from my friends: A one-pot hydrolysis–deoxygenation reaction for triglycerides and free fatty acids, which is of particular interest for the production of biofuels and value-added chemicals from nonedible or waste fats and oils, is reported. The reaction is performed over palladium on carbon (Pd/C) at 250 °C without additional H2. Instead, in situ H2 production occurs through glycerol reforming and subsequent water–gas-shift reaction with a positive effect on the deoxygenation activity.
