Selective hydrogenation of arenes to cyclohexanes in water catalyzed by chitin-supported ruthenium nanoparticles

Author affiliations

Abstract

The selective hydrogenation of aromatic compounds to cyclohexanes was found to be promoted by chitin-supported ruthenium nanoparticles (Ru/chitin) under near-neutral, aqueous conditions without the loss of C–O/C–N linkages at benzylic positions.
