Accelerated asymmetric transfer hydrogenation of aromatic ketones in water

Author affiliations

Abstract

Asymmetric transfer hydrogenation of various simple aromatic ketones by the Ru-TsDPEN catalyst was shown to be feasible in aqueous HCOONa without calling for any catalyst modification, furnishing ee's of up to 95% and significantly faster rates than in the HCOOH–NEt3 azeotrope.
