SOUTH CAROLINA UNIV COLUMBIA DEPT OF CHEMISTRY
Pagination or Media Count:
Treatment of hydrated RhCl3 and CuNO32 in THF and H2O with triethoxysilane affords a highly chemo- and stereoselective catalyst system for the reduction of alkynes to Z-alkenes while alkyl-NO2, aryl-NO2, N- carbobenzyloxy, hydroxy, ester, enoate, benzyloxy, alkyl bromide, aryl bromide, and enone moieties remain unaffected.
