Abstract

New bis(oxazolinyl)phenyl–ruthenium(II) complexes, which were synthesized by C–H bond activation with RuCl3·3H2O in zinc powder and 1,5-cyclooctadine followed by ligand exchange reaction with sodium acetylacetonate or acetylacetone, exhibited enantioselective hydrogenation of ketones in up to 90% ee.
