A new catalyst for hydrogen transfer hydrogenation of acetophenone
- 化学化工－已发表论文 
A new C-2-symmetric diamine/diphosphine Ruthenium (II) complex, RuCl2P2N2H4, was used as an excellent catalyst to carry out the catalytic hydrogen transfer reduction of acetophenone. The conversion of acetophenone to 2-phenylethanol was up to 99% under the following reaction conditions: substrate:Ru:(CH3)(2)CHOK = 200:1:12; reaction temperature of 65 degrees C; reaction time of 2 h; normal pressure. A hydride transfer mechanism was also discussed.
