Germanium(II) hydride mediated reduction of carbon dioxide to formic acid and methanol with ammonia borane as the hydrogen source

Author affiliations

Abstract

LGeOC(O)H (3) (L = CH{(CMe)(2,6-iPr2C6H3N)}2), from the straightforward conversion of LGeH (2) with CO2, reacts with LiH2NBH3 giving 2 and LiOC(O)H (4), while the corresponding reaction of 3 with H3NBH3 after aqueous workup releases 2 and CH3OH (5). This opens the possibility to use hydride 2 as a mediator in the reduction of carbon dioxide to formic acid and methanol.
