Stereoselective alkyne semihydrogenations with an air-stable copper(i) catalyst

Author affiliations

Abstract

An air-stable and preactivated copper(I) hydroxide/N-heteroyclic carbene (NHC) complex for alkyne semihydrogenations is reported. Next to an enhanced practicability of the process, the resulting alkenes are obtained with high Z-selectivities and no overreduction to the corresponding alkanes.
