Abstract

Transition metal complexes have been commonly used in transfer hydrogenation, an important reaction in both laboratory and industry. Molybdenum complexes, proven in previous research to be configurationally stable, can be effective catalysts for transferring hydrogen. In our research, we look at the efficiency of a water soluble molybdenum catalyst Mo(CO)3(4,7-dihydroxyl-1,10-phenanthroline)(allyl)OTFAfor unsaturated ketone reduction. A sacrificial alcohol of isopropyl alcohol with Mo(CO)3(4,7-dihydroxyl-1,10-phenanthroline)(allyl)OTFA was expected to reduce 2-cyclohexen-1-one. However, reactivity studies indicate base catalyzed condensations occur preferentially to reduction.
