Hydrogen goes with the flow: Conversion of amides into amines is usually achieved with stoichiometric amounts of metal hydrides, which generate large amounts of waste. Catalytic hydrogenation represents an environmentally benign alternative for this conversion, whereas flow catalysis allows catalyst separation and high throughput. Here, we combine amide hydrogenation and flow catalysis for the first time.
