Renewable chemicals: dehydroxylation of glycerol and polyols.

ten Dam J, Hanefeld U - ChemSusChem (2011)

Bottom Line: This new chemical toolbox needs to be designed to guarantee the demands of future generations at a reasonable price.The surplus of functionality in sugars and glycerol consists of alcohol groups.To yield suitable renewable chemicals these natural products need to be defunctionalized by means of dehydroxylation.
