 Abstract: Highly selective beta-methylation of alcohols was achieved using an earth-abundant first row transition metal in the air stable molecular manganese complex [Mn(CO)(2)Br[HN((C2H4PPr2)-Pr-i)(2)]] 1 ([HN((C2H4PPr2)-Pr-i)(2)]=MACHO-Pr-i). The reaction requires only low loadings of 1 (0.5 mol %), methanolate as base and MeOH as methylation reagent as well as solvent. Various alcohols were beta-methylated with very good selectivity (>99 %) and excellent yield (up to 94 %). Biomass derived aliphatic alcohols and diols were also selectively methylated on the beta-position, opening a pathway to "biohybrid" molecules constructed entirely from non-fossil carbon. Mechanistic studies indicate that the reaction proceeds through a borrowing hydrogen pathway involving metal-ligand cooperation at the Mn-pincer complex. This transformation provides a convenient, economical, and environmentally benign pathway for the selective C-C bond formation with potential applications for the preparation of advanced biofuels, fine chemicals, and biologically active molecules
