Efficient and highly selective iron-catalyzed reduction of nitroarenes

Author affiliations

Abstract

Pyrolysis of iron–phenanthroline complexes supported on carbon leads to highly selective catalysts for the reduction of structurally diverse nitroarenes to anilines in 90–99% yields. Excellent chemoselectivity for the nitro group reduction is demonstrated.
