Efficient asymmetric transfer hydrogenation of ketones in ethanol with chiral iridium complexes of spiroPAP ligands as catalysts

Author affiliations

Abstract

Highly efficient iridium catalyzed asymmetric transfer hydrogenation of simple ketones with ethanol as a hydrogen donor has been developed. By using chiral spiro iridium catalysts (S)-1a a series of alkyl aryl ketones were hydrogenated to chiral alcohols with up to 98% ee.
