Abstract

Unsaturated aldehydes can be reduced under very mild conditions (30-80°C) with good yields and excellent selectivities to the corresponding unsaturated alcohols by hydrogen transfer from HCOONa/H2O catalyzed by a complex of RuII with sulphonated triphenylphosphine in aqueous/organic biphasic systems.
