Ligand-free nickel-catalyzed semihydrogenation of alkynes with sodium borohydride: a highly efficient and selective process for cis-alkenes under ambient conditions

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report a low-cost and efficient catalytic system, involving in situ generated ligand-free Ni NPs, methanol and sodium borohydride, for the semihydrogenation of alkynes under ambient conditions. This catalytic system exhibits remarkably high activity, satisfactory cis-selectivity for internal alkynes, good stability and general applicability.
