Nitroarenes can be reduced in high yields to the corresponding anilines by transfer hydrogenation using a stable H-donor, polymer-supported formate (PSF) in combination with palladium acetate (catalytic). The reactions occur at 100–120∘C in dimethyl-formamide and the PSF can be recycled for at least three runs. The procedure is chemoselective for nitro(More)
A simple, chemoselective transfer hydrogenation of aryl aldehydes with the aid of Amberlite((R)) resin formate (ARF), a stable H-donor, in the presence of catalytic ruthenium trichloride is described. Aromatic aldehydes and 1,2-diketones are reduced efficiently and selectively, while aryl ketones remain unchanged. Several other potentially reducible groups(More)
