Selective reductive transformations using samarium diiodide-water

Author affiliations

Abstract

Samarium diiodide (SmI2) is one of the most important reductive electron transfer reagents available in the laboratory. Key to the popularity of SmI2 is the ability of additives and co-solvents to tune the properties of the reagent. Over the last decade water has emerged as a particularly valuable additive, opening up new chemical space and leading to the discovery of unprecedented selectivity and new reactions promoted by SmI2. In this Feature Article we review recent progress in the application of SmI2H2O systems, with an emphasis on mechanistic considerations and the development of new transformations.
