Abstract

Base-metal-catalyzed dehydrogenative cross-coupling of primary alcohols to form cross-esters as major products, liberating hydrogen gas, is reported. The reaction is catalyzed by a pincer complex of earth-abundant manganese in the presence of catalytic base, without any hydrogen acceptor or oxidant. Mechanistic insight indicates that a dearomatized complex is the actual catalyst, and indeed this independently prepared dearomatized complex catalyzes the reaction under neutral conditions.
