Technology Description: This invention relates generally to the use of sugar and acetol feed stocks to produce acetol propylene glycol acrolein acrylic acid monomers and 13 propanediols. C4-C12 sugars react in gas phases to produce predominantly acetol and propylene glycol at temperatures between 150 and 300 degree Celsius. Acetol reacts to form acrolein in a gas phase over solid acid catalyst at lower temperatures and higher pressures than previously thought possible. The specific conversion of this invention is as described in the title. Applications: ) Production of C3 chemicals from glycerol and/or sugars
