Abstract

The directed, chemoselective hydrogenation of olefins has been established using iridium(I) catalysts which feature a tuned NHC/phosphine ligand combination. This selective reduction process has been demonstrated in a wide array of solvents, including more environmentally acceptable media, also allowing further refinement of hydrogenation selectivity.
