Abstract

The ruthenium pincer-catalyzed synthesis of γ-butyrolactones from 1,2-diols and malonates using borrowing-hydrogen methodology is reported. This regioselective domino-process takes place through catalytic C-C bond formation, followed by intramolecular transesterification. Herein, we show the Ru-MACHO-BH complex as a valuable catalyst in hydrogen autotransfer reactions.
