Hydrogenation of nitroarenes using defined iron–phosphine catalysts

Author affiliations

Abstract

A novel iron-catalyzed hydrogenation of nitroarenes to the corresponding amines is reported. An in situ combination of Fe(BF4)2·6H2O and phosphine allows for highly selective hydrogenation of a broad range of aromatic and nitroarenes tolerating different functional groups.
