Selective Hydrogenation
« on: February 27, 2008, 12:31:10 PM »
Hi again,

I have another query that's been bugging me. I have been trying to selectively reduce a double bond without turning a nitro group into an amine.

Any suggestions?

Do you want enantioselective reduction here?

Perhaps something like di-imide reduction, or Wilkinson's catalyst.

Will try and find some references in the morning (it's late here ;) )

Wilkinson's catalyst seems like a good idea. Thanks. Initially enantioselectivity isn't improtant. But it might become important later.
