Selective iron-catalyzed transfer hydrogenation of terminal alkynes

Author affiliations

Abstract

A novel iron-catalyzed transfer hydrogenation of alkynes to the corresponding alkenes applying formic acid as a hydrogen donor is reported. An in situ combination of Fe(BF4)2·6H2O and tetraphos allows for highly selective hydrogenation of a broad range of aromatic and aliphatic alkynes tolerating different functional groups.
