Catalytic hydrogenation of carboxylic acids using low-valent and high-valent metal complexes

Author affiliations

Abstract

Carboxylic acids are ubiquitous in bio-renewable and petrochemical sources of carbon. The hydrogenation of carboxylic acids to alcohols generates water as the only by-product, and thus represents a sustainable method for the production of these alternative energy carriers/platform chemicals on a large scale. Herein, we offer a brief account of the development of this new concept and molecular insights into cationic mononuclear low- and high-valent transition-metal complexes for the hydrogenation of carboxylic acids.
