Robust cyclometallated Ir(III) catalysts for the homogeneous hydrogenation of N-heterocycles under mild conditions

Author affiliations

Abstract

Cyclometallated Cp*Ir(NC)Cl complexes derived from N-aryl ketimines are highly active catalysts for the reduction of N-heterocycles under ambient conditions and 1 atm H2 pressure. The reaction tolerates a broad range of other potentially reducible functionalities and does not require the use of specialised equipment, additives or purified solvent.
