Water-Soluble Arene Ruthenium Complexes Containing a trans-1,2-Diaminocyclohexane Ligand as Enantioselective Transfer Hydrogenation Catalysts in Aqueous Solution (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 22/2005)

2005_22/2005The cover picture shows the postulated catalytic cycle for the pH-dependent, enantioselective transfer hydrogenation of acetophenone to give phenylethanol in water, using formate as hydrogen donor and (arene)ruthenium(trans-diaminocyclohexane) as chiral catalyst. This work illustrates the increasing interest for water-soluble enantioselective catalysts operating in aqueous solution. Details are discussed in the article by G. Süss-Fink et al. on p. 4493 ff.
