Routes of catalytic hydrogen addition to α, β-unsaturated ketones

  • 28 Accesses


  1. 1.

    Intermediate enol formation has been registered by deuterium exchange in the hydrogenation products ofα, β-unsaturated ketones on Co/C and Rh/C, indicating 1,4 addition of hydrogen to the enone system.

  2. 2.

    The presence of 1,4 hydrogen addition toα,β-unsaturated ketones is determined by the nature of the catalyst; Pd/C does not catalyze this process route.

  3. 3.

    Modification of Pd catalysts with cadmium changes their orienting action and selectivity in favor of 1,4 hydrogen addition with intermediate enol formation.
