cis-1,4-Butenediol is shown to be a highly active hydrogen source for asymmetric transfer hydrogenation in the reduction of ketones. With the use of a ruthenium catalyst, cis-1,4-butenediol is isomerised and subsequently oxidised to a lactone as an irreversible step, which provides the driving force for the asymmetric reduction of ketones.
FingerprintDive into the research topics of 'Alternative hydrogen source for asymmetric transfer hydrogenation in the reduction of ketones'. Together they form a unique fingerprint.
