Selective ruthenium-catalyzed methylation of 2-arylethanols using methanol as C1 feedstock

Author affiliations

Abstract

We describe the selective cross coupling of methanol and 2-arylethanols using a combination of Ru-MACHO (RuHCl(PNPPh)CO) and Shvo's diruthenium complex as catalysts. The desired domino transformation takes place via so-called borrowing hydrogen methodology, which constitutes an ideal example of green chemistry.
