A Selective Ru-Catalyzed Semireduction of Alkynes to Z Olefins under Transfer-Hydrogenation Conditions

Authors


Abstract

By using a readily available, air- and moisture-stable dihydrido–Ru complex, a variety of Z olefins are accessible under transfer-hydrogenation conditions with formic acid as the hydrogen source in excellent yields and Z/E selectivities.
