This thesis is about the study of developing novel catalysts and catalytic processes and applying them to convert renewable alcohols produced from biomass into value-added chemicals. It focuses on developing iridium catalysts for hydrogen transfer initiated dehydration of 1,3- propanediol in ionic liquids as solvent and applying functionalized ionic liquids as homo- and heterogeneous catalysts for dehydration of D-sorbitol and rac-1-phenylethanol respectively.
