Abstract

Aqueous glycerol was used as the hydrogen source for the reduction of CO2 to the hydrogen carrier formic acid in the presence of the catalyst [RuCl2(PPh3)3]. All intermediates were identified and characterized. Glycerol was converted into glycolic acid, HO-CH2-COOH, that was identified by using 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy. In the face of wastefulness: Aqueous glycerol is used as a hydrogen source for the reduction of CO2 to formic acid. In the presence of RuCl2(PPh3)3, glycerol behaves as a four-hydrogen transfer agent affording glycolic acid.
