Abstract

A general protocol for the synthetically and industrially important hydrogenation of aldehydes to alcohols is reported. The reactions are catalyzed by well-defined iron pincer complexes that are capable of hydrogenation of aliphatic and aromatic aldehydes selectively and efficiently under mild conditions, with unprecedented turnover numbers.
