Simple and Efficient Microwave-Assisted Hydrogenation Reactions at Moderate Temperature and Pressure
20 December 2006 (online)
A generally applicable method for the introduction of gaseous hydrogen into a sealed reaction system to perform hydrogenation reactions under microwave irradiation has been developed. Several different types of substrates are easily reduced in short reaction times with moderate temperatures between 80 °C and 100 °C with 50 psi of hydrogen. The use of simultaneous cooling is also applied to the hydrogenation of more difficult substrates.
