Abstract

original image

Can I borrow hydrogen? Direct amination of biomass-derived platform alcohols can be efficiently performed through the borrowing hydrogen mechanism, offering high activity and selectivity at low-to-moderate temperatures. Unlike nucleophilic substitution, the catalyst behaves as a tandem system involving the temporary removal of H2 from the reaction medium.
