Abstract

Modification of Ru/SiO2 with metal oxides (MoOx, WOx, and ReOx) improved the activity and selectivity in the hydrogenation of 3-nitrostyrene to 3-aminostyrene under mild conditions such as 0.3 MPa H2, 303 K, and no solvent. Ru–MoOx/SiO2(Mo/Ru = 1/2) catalyst was applicable to various substituted nitroarenes, providing the corresponding substituted aminoarenes in high yields (85–99%).
