Abstract

original image

A catalyst in the crowd: The selective debenzylation of aryl benzyl ethers, benzyl esters, and benzyl amines leaving other sensitive groups intact can be carried out in high yield under remarkably mild conditions [0.1 MPa (1 bar), H2 at room temperature] over a new series of recyclable palladium(0) heterogeneous catalysts.
