Rate and stereoselectivity changes during hydrogenation of N-heterocycles

Research output: Article


High diastereoselectivities were obtained in the heterogeneous catalytic hydrogenation of chiral pyrrole and pyridine derivatives with complete conversion, in non-acidic medium. The products of the hydrogenations, secondary and tertiary amines act as catalyst modifiers, increasing the d.e. values in the last period of the reactions.
