Abstract

Iron-catalyzed reductions: Selective iron-catalyzed reduction of aldehydes with hydrogen generated in situ by the water-gas shift reaction is presented (see scheme). The generality and selectivity of this mild procedure are demonstrated by the efficient reduction of various aromatic, aliphatic and α,β-unsaturated aldehydes.
