Abstract

A heterogeneous copper catalyst, formed in situ, has been shown to dehydrocouple commercially available amine boranes whilst transferring hydrogen for the reduction of selected organic functional groups in an aqueous medium. The catalytic system has also been shown to promote the reductive amination of aryl nitriles.
