Various (±)-trans-2-arylnitrocyclohexane derivatives were hydrogenated to the corresponding amines over a Pd/C catalyst in methanol at 25-60 °C and 1-12 bar. These (±)-trans-2-arylcyclohexylamines are important and valuable key intermediates for the stereoselective synthesis of phenantridine-based Amaryllidaceae alkaloid analogues having cytostatic activity.
