Enantioselective Transfer Hydrogenation of Ketones Catalyzed by a Manganese Complex Containing an Unsymmetrical Chiral PNP′ Tridentate Ligand

Going into hyd-ing: The first enantioselective transfer hydrogenation of ketones catalyzed by a well-defined Mn-based complex containing a chiral PNP′ pincer ligand with a planar chiral ferrocene and a centro chiral aliphatic unit is reported. The asymmetric transfer hydrogenation reactions procced under mild conditions with conversions up to 96 % and ee values up to 86 %.

Selectively Converting Biomass to Jet Fuel in Large-scale Apparatus

Leaving on a jet plane: Jet fuel is not easy to synthesize by biomass–to–liquid processes owing to the limitation of the Anderson–Schulz–Flory (ASF) hydrocarbon distribution law in Fischer–Tropsch synthesis (FTS). Thus, anti-ASF distribution is realized to selectively produce jet fuel from biomass on a large scale by addition of small amounts of 1-olefin, a FTS product, into syngas derived from woods, enhancing jet fuel selectivity in hydrocarbons up to 64 % and that in oil product to as high as 91 %.
