Selective conversion of glycerol to lactic acid with iron pincer precatalysts.

A family of iron complexes of PNP pincer ligands are active catalysts for the conversion of glycerol to lactic acid with high activity and selectivity. These complexes also catalyse transfer hydrogenation reactions using glycerol as the hydrogen source.
