Sulfur elimination from fuel is a crucial technological challenge rising by current environmental regulations. The reaction routes of hydrogenation and direct desulfurization processes involving dibenzothiophenes-derivates are compared by means of density functional theory simulations. The hydrogenation routes is found to have lower activation and better energetics than direct desulfurization.
