Abstract

An efficient hydrogen generation from glycerol and selective synthesis of lactic acid (67%) using pincer-type ruthenium complexes is described. Analysis of the products from glycerol dehydrogenation indicates that improving the efficiency of the decarboxylation step is a key point for further reforming processes.
