Abstract

Aromatic nitro compounds can be reduced via transfer hydrogenation in the presence of Pd on basic supports in alcoholic sodium hydroxide yielding not only the appropriate amine, but the azobenzene and azoxybenzene intermediates as well. Depending on the support, the reaction time and the amount of sodium hydroxide added, both the intermediates and the amine can be produced with excellent selectivity.
