Reduction of aromatic nitro-compounds to amines with sodium borohydride–copper(II) acetylacetonate

Abstract

The reduction of aromatic nitro-compounds by NaBH4 in ethanol in the presence of various transition metal cetylacetonates has been investigated. Copper(II) acetylacetonate was found to be the most effective catalyst for reduction to the corresponding amines. This reaction appears to proceed through a hydride metal complex.
