Selective Hydrogenation in Carbon Dioxide-dissolved Expanded Liquid Phases

The pressurisation of carbon dioxide in organic liquids and water can modify and functionalise their properties and actions as reaction media through interactions of the dissolved carbon dioxide molecules with the solvents, substrates, intermediates, products and/or catalysts. This chapter describes several examples of interesting promotion effects of carbon dioxide on the selective hydrogenation reactions of carbonyl, nitro, nitrile compounds and other substrates.
