Abstract: A very efficient ligand-free method was developed for the transfer hydrogenation of ketones and aldehydes catalyzed by different metal complexes. With this catalytic system, the catalytic performance and catalytic stability of different Ir, Ru, and Pd complexes were more favorable than those of the previously reported systems for transfer hydrogenation. This ligand-free catalytic system showed good stability and excellent activity even with lower catalyst concentrations for the ketones and aldehydes tested.
Keywords: Transfer hydrogenation, ruthenium, iridium, palladium, ketone, aldehyde
