Fluoride's new role: Selective and efficient monoreductions of imides can be achieved with polymethylhydrosiloxane (PMHS) and tetra-n-butylammonium fluoride (TBAF) as catalyst (see scheme). The system is characterized by good chemoselectivity, operational simplicity, and functional-group tolerance; a concise mechanistic proposal was possible from in situ spectroscopic investigations.
