Abstract

Azines (2,3-diazabuta-1,3-dienes) are a widely used class of compounds with conjugated CN double bonds. Herein, we present a direct synthesis of azines from alcohols and hydrazine hydrate. The reaction, catalyzed by a ruthenium pincer complex, evolves dihydrogen and can be run in a base-free version The deh dro enative cou lin of benz lic and aliphatic alcohols led to good conversions and yields. Spectroscopic evidence for a hydrazine-coordinated dearomatized ruthenium pincer complex was obtained. Isolation of a supramolecular crystalline compound provided evidence for the important role of hydrogen bonding networks under the reaction conditions.
