Highly selective hydrogenation and hydrogenolysis using a copper-doped porous metal oxide catalyst

Author affiliations

Abstract

A copper-doped porous metal oxide catalyst in combination with hydrogen shows selective and quantitative hydrogenolysis of benzyl ketones and aldehydes, and hydrogenation of alkenes. The approach provides an alternative to noble-metal catalysed reductions and stoichiometric Wolff-Kishner and Clemmensen methods.
