Iron-catalyzed selective reduction of nitroarenes to anilines using organosilanes

Author affiliations

Abstract

The iron-catalyzed reduction of aromatic nitro compounds to the corresponding anilines applying organosilanes is reported. In the presence of FeX2–R3P catalysts a series of nitroarenes is selectively reduced tolerating a wide range of functional groups.
