Abstract

Herein we report an efficient hydrosilylation strategy to selectively defunctionalize biomass-derived levulinic acid into value-added chemicals such as pentane-1,4-diol, pentan-2-ol, 2-MTHF and C5 hydrocarbons by using cost-effective silanes and the commercially available catalyst B(C6F5)3 at room temperature. All reactions work well in chlorinated solvents but, as a greener alternative, most reactions can be run in toluene or solvent-less.
