Abstract

original image

Mit Wasserstoff aus Wasser: Mit Gold als Katalysator und einer Kombination aus H2O und CO als Reduktionsmittel gelang die selektive Reduktion von Nitroverbindungen unter sehr milden Bedingungen (siehe Schema). Diese umweltfreundliche Reaktion verläuft in Gegenwart einer Vielzahl funktioneller Gruppen mit hohen Ausbeuten und hoher Chemoselektivität.
