Amination and dehydration of 1,3-propanediol by hydrogen transfer: reactions of a bio-renewable platform chemical

Author affiliations

Abstract

1,3-propanediol was subjected to a range of amination conditions. The N-heterocyclic carbene piano stool complex [Cp*IrCl2(bmim)] was found to be a good catalyst for amination and dehydration in toluene or ionic liquid; product compositions could be tuned by altering the ratio of diol to amine.
