Silver bullet: The first silver-catalyzed hydrogenation in water was developed. A silver complex containing a bulky monodentate phosphine ligand was used to generate alcohols from a broad range of aldehydes, including aliphatic, aromatic, and heterocyclic aldehydes. This method provides a direct and efficient route to alcohols from aldehydes and opens a new avenue in silver catalysis.
