Wabnitz, Tobias C. ; Rizzo, Simona ; Götte, Carsten ; Buschauer, Armin ; Benincori, Tiziana ; Reiser, Oliver


α,β-Unsaturated nitriles can be hydrogenated with enantioselectivities up to 88% ee using chiral ruthenium-diphenylphosphino bisaryl and bisheteroaryl complexes such as ruthenium(II)-BINAP and ruthenium(II)-BINP. Mechanistic investigations indicate that conversion is accelerated by electron-rich ligands and that an additional coordinative group needs be present in order to promote conversion. The ...
