Reduction of nitriles with 2-propanol in presence of RhCl(PPh3)3 and RuCl2(PPh3)3

  • 23 Accesses

Conclusions

The complexes RhCl(PPh3)3 and RuCl2(PPh3)3 catalyze hydrogen transfer from 2-propanol to the C ≡ N bond of benzonitrile and capronitrile. The reduction rate of the aromatic nitrile is higher than that of the aliphatic nitrile.
