Methanol as hydrogen source: transfer hydrogenation of aromatic aldehydes with a rhodacycle

Author affiliations

Abstract

A cyclometalated rhodium complex has been shown to perform highly selective and efficient reduction of aldehydes, deriving the hydrogen from methanol. With methanol as both the solvent and hydrogen donor under mild conditions and an open atmosphere, a wide range of aromatic aldehydes were reduced to the corresponding alcohols, without affecting other functional groups.
