Highly productive CO2 hydrogenation to methanol – a tandem catalytic approach via amide intermediates

Author affiliations

Abstract

A new system for CO2 reduction to methanol has been demonstrated using homogeneous ruthenium catalysts with a range of amine auxiliaries. Modification of this amine has a profound effect on the yield and selectivity of the reaction. A TON of 8900 and TOF of 4500 h−1 is achieved using a [RuCl2(Ph2PCH2CH2NHMe)2] catalyst with a diisopropylamine auxiliary.
