Hydrogenation and N-alkylation of anilines and imines via transfer hydrogenation with homogeneous nickel compounds

Abstract

The nickel-catalyzed N-alkylation of a variety of arylamines via transfer hydrogenation in the absence of pressurized hydrogen and basic or acidic additives was achieved in a tandem reaction. This process was further extended to the C[double bond, length as m-dash]N bond reduction and N-alkylation of a variety of imines with ethanol, the latter acting as a hydrogen and acetaldehyde source, which allowed for the reduction and subsequent condensation to yield the corresponding N-alkylated products.
