N2 - Substituted arylethanols can be coupled by using a readily available Ru catalyst in a fully deoxygenative manner to produce hydrocarbon chains in one step. Control experiments indicate that the first deoxygenation occurs through an aldol condensation, whereas the second occurs through a base-induced net decarbonylation. This double deoxygenation enables further development in the use of alcohols as versatile and green alkylating reagents, as well as in other fields, such as deoxygenation and upgrading of overfunctionalized biomass to produce hydrocarbons.
