The versatility of effortlessness: The hydrogenation of aliphatic and aromatic ketones under mild reaction conditions is established. The method is highly efficient for the hydrogenation of aliphatic ketones, even including sterically hindered and highly strained ketones, under mild conditions. In addition, the selective hydrogenation of the carbonyl group of aromatic ketones is achieved with the aromatic nuclei and the resulting secondary benzyl alcohol moiety still intact.
