Abstract: Reductions of benzene, toluene, ortho-xylene, cumene, anisole and benzoic acid to corresponding nonconjugated dienes were realized at room temperature by gas NH_3 and Li. The reduced products were easily isolated because THF and dioxane were dissolved in the water. The yields and conversions of the reactions were 70-89% and 80-100%, respectively.
Keywords: Arenes, lithium, reductions, alcohols, protonations, ethers
