Abstract

(Chemical Equation Presented) Doing it on the cheap: An iron-based homogeneous catalyst for ketone hydrogenation was reported, thus avoiding the use of a precious metal. Excellent yields and chemoselectivity for hydrogenation are found under mild conditions (25°C, 3 atm H2). An ionic hydrogenation mechanism allows the delivery of a proton from the OH group and a hydride from the metal center (see picture).
