[Re]ad all about it: The first examples of the rhenium-catalyzed dehydrogenative formation of amides and esters with the highly active ReH5(triphos) complex are demonstrated. The addition of a tertiary amine additive improves the selectivity and the stability of the catalyst in the formation of esters from primary alcohols.
