Enhancement of enantioselectivity by alcohol additives in asymmetric hydrogenation with bis(oxazolinyl)phenyl ruthenium catalysts

Author affiliations

Abstract

Bis(oxazolinyl)phenyl ruthenium(II) complexes were found to catalyze asymmetric hydrogenation of ketones, in which chiral bulky alcohol additives showed significant enhancement of enantioselectivity even in protic solvents.
