Novel Monotosylated Ethylenediamine as Ligand for Ruthenium(II)- Catalyzed Transfer Hydrogenation of Aldehydes in Water
Novel monotosylated ethylenediamine was synthesized from ethylenediamine and its application to ruthenium(II)-transfer hydrogenation of aldehydes in water is described. The transfer hydrogenation reaction could afford excellent
conversion rates (up to 100%).
