dc.description.abstractWe report a room-temperature protocol for the hydrogenation of various amides to produce amines and alcohols. Compared with most previous reports for this transformation, which use high temperatures (typically, 100–200 °C) and H2 pressures (10–100 bar), this system proceeds under extremely mild conditions (RT, 5–10 bar of H2). The hydrogenation is catalyzed by well-defined ruthenium-PNNH pincer complexes (0.5 mol %) with potential dual modes of metal–ligand cooperation. An unusual Ru-amidate complex was formed and crystallographically characterized. Mechanistic investigations indicate that the room-temperature hydrogenation proceeds predominantly via the Ru–N amido/amine metal–ligand cooperation.
