Efficient hydrogenation of organic carbonates, carbamates and formates indicates alternative routes to methanol based on CO2 and CO
Catalytic hydrogenation of organic carbonates, carbamates and formates is of significant interest both conceptually and practically, because these compounds can be produced from CO2 and CO, and theirExpand

Ruthenium-Catalyzed Urea Synthesis by N-H Activation of Amines.
Activation of the N-H bond of amines by a ruthenium pincer complex operating via "amine-amide" metal-ligand cooperation is demonstrated. Catalytic formyl C-H activation of N,N-dimethylformamide (DMF)Expand

Metal-ligand cooperation by aromatization-dearomatization: a new paradigm in bond activation and "green" catalysis.
In view of global concerns regarding the environment and sustainable energy resources, there is a strong need for the discovery of new, green catalytic reactions. For this purpose, fresh approachesExpand

Direct conversion of alcohols to acetals and H(2) catalyzed by an acridine-based ruthenium pincer complex.
The crystallographically characterized ruthenium complex RuHCl(A-(i)Pr-PNP)(CO) (1) [A-(i)Pr-PNP = 4,5-bis-(diisopropylphosphinomethyl)acridine], which bears a nonplanar acridine moiety, catalyzes inExpand

Ruthenium catalyzed hydroboration of terminal alkynes to Z-vinylboronates.
The nonclassical ruthenium hydride pincer complex [Ru(PNP)(H)(2)(H(2))] 1 (PNP = 1,3-bis(di-tert-butyl-phosphinomethyl)pyridine) catalyzes the anti-Markovnikov addition of pinacolborane to terminalExpand
