Title: Ultra-Stable and High-Cobalt-Loaded Cobalt@Ordered Mesoporous Carbon Catalysts: All-in-One Deoxygenation of Ketone into Alkylbenzene

Abstract

Catalytic deoxygenation represents a straightforward and core methodology for fine-chemical production and biomass upgrading. Generally, the application of homogeneous metal complexes or heterogeneous noble-metal catalysts prevails in academia and the chemical industry. We introduce cobalt@ordered mesoporous carbon (Co@OMC) catalysts, which are constructed conveniently by a mechanochemical coordination self-assembly based on a renewable tannin precursor. Importantly, the Co@OMC catalysts with a high loading of in situ confined Co species promote the selective deoxygenation of various ketones, aldehydes, and alcohols efficiently into the corresponding alkanes under mild conditions. Therefore, a simple, inexpensive, and heterogeneous catalyst for selective deoxygenation can be expected, meanwhile the solid-state synthesis affords a green, rapid, and scalable pathway to Co@OMC catalysts.
