Manganese catalyzed hydrogenation of enantiomerically pure esters
MetadataShow full item record
A manganese-catalyzed hydrogenation of esters has been accomplished with TON up to 1000, using cheap, environmentally benign, potassium carbonate and simple alcohols as activator and solvent, respectively. The weakly basic conditions lead to good functional group tolerance and enable the hydrogenation of enantiomerically enriched α-chiral esters with essentially no loss of stereochemical integrity.
