Recent Advances in Catalytic Hydrogenations for Organic Syntheses

Catalytic hydrogenation is a typical reduction method in the fine chemical industry (e.g. pharmaceutical industry) for producing important and valuable organic chemicals. It can be realized both heterogeneous and homogeneous ways, but different selectivity (chemo-, regio- or stereoselectivity) problems can arise in case of more reducible functional groups. In addition, the reduction of compounds having catalyst poisoning character (typical substances containing nitrogen, phosphorus or sulphur) could be difficult, because the activity of the catalyst decreases... see more
