Abstract

Exposure of aldehyde or ketone to 1 mol % BIAN-Fe(C7H8) complex in the presence of diphenyl silane affords the corresponding protected alcohol in excellent yields, under mild reaction conditions. Aldehydes and ketones are reduced cleanly in the presence of a broad range of functional groups under solvent-free conditions.
