Cobalt-catalysed selective synthesis of aldehydes and alcohols from esters

Author affiliations

Abstract

Efficient and selective reduction of esters to aldehydes and alcohols is reported in which a simple cobalt pincer catalyst catalyses both transformations using diethylsilane as a reductant. Remarkably, the reaction selectivity is controlled by the stoichiometry of diethylsilane.
