Abstract

To discover the reaction mechanism for the production of hydrogen and lactic acid from glycerol under alkaline hydrothermal conditions, we identified the different intermediates involved during reactions by investigating the solvent isotope effect with 1H-NMR, 2H-NMR, LC-MS and Gas-MS analyses, and then proposed and proved a potential reaction mechanism.
