Abstract

Selective conversion of glycerol into 1,2-propanediol in the presence of a Pd/Fe2O3 catalyst, under inert atmosphere, is reported for the first time; the hydrogen necessary for the hydrogenolysis reaction derives from the dehydrogenation of the solvent (2-propanol or ethanol), promoted by supported palladium, itself reduced “in situ” by alcohols.
