  • Patent number: 8716507
    Abstract: New hexa-coordinate iron (II) complexes comprising compounds of formula (I) are described. These compounds comprise a tetradentate ligand with donor atoms comprising nitrogen and phosphorus. These complexes are shown for the first time to be useful catalysts for the hydrogenation of ketones, aldehydes, or imines to produce alcohols or amines, and the asymmetric hydrogenation of prochiral ketones or imines to produce non-racemic alcohols or amines. The source of the hydrogen can be hydrogen gas or a hydrogen-donating molecule such as isopropanol or hydrogen-donating mixture such as formic acid and an amine depending on the structure of the catalyst. In certain embodiments, the axial ligands on the catalyst comprise organonitrile ligands, carbonyl ligands, isonitrile ligands, or combinations thereof. The catalysts and the preparation thereof are disclosed. A reaction using phosphine and diamine precursors that is templated by the iron ion is the preferred route to the catalysts.

  • Patent number: 8703985
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to a method for the preparation of ruthenium indenylidene carbene catalysts of the type (L)(L?)X2Ru(II)(aryl-indenylidene). The method comprises the steps of reacting the precursor compound Ru(PPh3)nX2 (n=3-4) with a propargyl alcohol derivative in an cyclic diether solvent such as 1,4-dioxane at temperatures in the range of 80 to 130° C. and reaction times of 1 to 60 minutes. Optionally, additional neutral electron donor ligands such as PCy3, phobane ligands or NHC ligands are added to the reaction mixture for ligand exchange. The method includes a precipitation step for purification, after which the product is isolated. The ruthenium-indenylidene carbene catalysts are obtained in high purity and are used as catalysts for metathesis reactions (RCM, ROMP and CM) and as precursors for the synthesis of modified ruthenium carbene catalysts.

  • Patent number: 8674125
    Abstract: A method for the creation of a carbon-carbon (C—C) bond or of a carbon-heteroatom (C-HE) bond includes reacting a compound carrying a leaving group with a nucleophilic compound carrying a carbon atom or a heteroatom (HE) capable of replacing the leaving group, thus creating a C—C or C-HE bond, in which process the reaction is carried out in the presence of an effective amount of a catalytic system comprising at least one copper/butadienylphosphine complex.

  • Patent number: 8658840
    Abstract: A production method of a ?-fluoroalcohol includes performing a reaction of an ?-fluoroester with hydrogen gas (H2) in the presence of a specific ruthenium complex (i.e. a ruthenium complex of the general formula [2], preferably a ruthenium complex of the general formula [4]). This production method can employ a suitable hydrogen pressure of 1 MPa or less by the use of such a specific ruthenium complex and does not require a high-pressure gas production facility when put in industrial practice. In addition, this production method can remarkably reduce the amount of catalyst used therein (to e.g. a substrate/catalyst ratio of 20,000) in comparison to the substrate/catalyst ratio conventional reduction of ?-fluoroalcohol. It is possible by these reduction in hydrogen pressure and catalyst amount to largely reduce the production cost of the ?-fluoroalcohol.
