Title: Harnessing the reactivity of poly(methylhydrosiloxane) for the reduction and cyclization of biomass to high-value products

Abstract

Poly(methylhydrosiloxane) (PMHS) has been examined for its ability to reduce and subsequently cyclize carbohydrate substrates using catalytic tris(pentafluorophenyl)borane (BCF).
