Phosphine-free cobalt pincer complex catalyzed Z-selective semi-hydrogenation of unbiased alkynes

Abstract

Here, we report a new, molecularly defined NNN-type cobalt pincer complex catalyzed transfer semi-hydrogenation of unbiased alkynes to Z-selective alkenes. This unified process is highly stereo-, and chemo-selective and exhibits a broad scope as well as wide functional group tolerance. Ammonia-borane (AB), a bench-stable substrate with high gravimetric hydrogen capacity was used as a safe and practical transfer hydrogenating source.
