Metal-free chemoselective reduction of nitroaromatics to anilines via hydrogen transfer strategy
- 134 Downloads
A novel protocol for chemoselective reduction of aromatic nitro compounds to aromatic amines has been established. The metal-free reduction goes through a hydrogen transfer process. Various easily reducible functional groups can be well tolerated under the optimized reaction conditions.
