Why is it important?

Oxo-alcohols is an important class of chemicals especially for developing countries. It is critical to develop cheap catalytic technologies to make these bulk chemicals. This paper reports methodology for quick synthesis bifunctional catalyst using earth abundant elements. The catalyst is then used for conducting aldol condensation and hydrogenation sequentially in same pot!
