Synthesis and catalytic activity of histidine-based NHC ruthenium complexes

Author affiliations

Abstract

Main-chain C,N-protected histidine has been successfully alkylated at both side-chain nitrogens. The corresponding histidinium salt was metallated with ruthenium(II) by a transmetalation procedure, thus providing histidine-derived NHC ruthenium complexes. These bio-inspired complexes show appreciable activity in the catalytic transfer hydrogenation of ketones.
