Abstract

Rapid and selective formal hydrogenolysis of aliphatic ester RC(O)O-R′ linkages is achieved by a tandem homogeneous metal triflate + supported palladium catalytic system. The triflate catalyzes the mildly exothermic, turnover-limiting O-R′ cleavage process, whereas the exothermic hydrogenation of the intermediate alkene further drives the overall reaction to completion.
