[Pd(NHC)(PR3)] complexes : versatile tools for tandem dehydrogenation-hydrogenation processes
MetadataShow full item record
Homogeneous Pd(0) complexes are powerful tools for numerous catalytic reactions. Recent work has demonstrated the unique properties displayed by [Pd(NHC)(PR3)] catalysts in the activation of ammonia borane (AB) and formic acid, with the subsequent formation of hydrogen. An understanding of the mechanism allowed for the design of a new dehydrogenation-hydrogenation tandem process using hydrogen storage materials'. The hydrogenations of alkenes and alkynes were successfully performed at low catalyst loadings of Pd(0) species and mild conditions. Such tandem process represents a safe and innovative alternative to classic hydrogenation protocols.
