Application

1,2,6-Hexanetriol has been used as a precursor to synthesize a trivalent linker containing three thiol moieties (triskelion) for the regioselective terminal activation of chitosan.
It can be used to prepare:
  • 1,6-Hexanediol (key polymer precursor to polyesters) via hydrodeoxygenation process in the presence of Rh–ReOx/SiO2 catalyst.
  • Tetrahydropyran-2-methanol, a six-membered oxide ring, by reacting with ethylene carbonate.
