Reduction of CåC and CåC by Noncatalytic Chemical Methods

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The reduction of alkenes and alkynes to alkanes and alkenes, respectively, is routinely accomplished through hetereogeneous catalytic methods. However, with significant regularity, these methods prove to be incompatible with the substrate under consideration. Therefore, niche noncatalytic methods, such as diimide reductions, find an important role in structurally sensitive substrates. This review covers recent progress in the deployment of noncatalytic chemical methods, including the increasingly popular use of diimide as a reductant.
