Abstract / Description of output

The amine-bis(phenolate) iron(III)-catalysed reduction of ketones and aldehydes to the corresponding secondary and primary alcohols by a consecutive hydrosilylation/hydrolysis process is reported. The amine-bis(phenolate) iron(III) catalyst is easily accessible, stable towards moisture and air and has a broad substrate scope.
