This study investigated the selective conversion of glycerol to 2-isopropoxy-propan-1-ol over noble metal ion-exchanged mordenite zeolites (RuMOR, RhMOR, and PdMOR) as heterogeneous catalysts via catalytic transfer hydrogenolysis (CTH) using propan-2-ol as the solvent, hydrogen supplier, and reactive coupling reagent with glycerol. The catalytic reactions were performed at 140 °C under inert conditions with a 0.5 MPa initial pressure of N2. A single product, 2-isopropoxy-propan-1-ol, was catalytically generated without any appreciable by-products. The catalytic results were reproducible, and the catalysts exhibited good recyclability.
