Manganese-Catalyzed Transfer Hydrogenation of Aldimines

Abstract : The reduction of imines to amines via transfer hydrogenation was achieved promoted by phosphine‐free manganese(I) catalyst. Using isopropanol as reductant, in the presence of tBuOK (4 mol %) and manganese complex [Mn(CO)3Br(κ2N,N‐PyCH2NH2)] (2 mol %), a large variety of aldimines (30 examples) were typically reduced in 3 hours at 80 °C with good to excellent yield.
