Abstract

(2,3-Epoxypropyl)benzene was chemoselectively reduced to allylbenzene along with formation of ketones in alcoholic suspensions of a silver-loaded titanium(IV) oxide photocatalyst at room temperature under atmospheric pressure without the use of reducing gases, and various epoxides were also reduced to the corresponding alkenes.
