Adipic acid (2) production currently entails use and generation of environmentally harmful materials: an efficient catalyst, consisting of nanoparticles of Ru10Pt2 anchored within the pores of mesoporous silica, facilitates the production of (2) by hydrogenating muconic acid, that may be derived biocatalytically from D-glucose. Industrially desirable chemical products such as adipic acid may be produced in good yields and selectivities from plant-crop sources, using highly active bimetallic nanocatalysts anchored onto mesoporous silica.
