Hydrogenation in Supercritical 1,1,1,2-Tetrafluoroethane(HFC 134a).

By Andrew P. Abbott, Wayne Eltringham, Eric G. Hope and M. Nicola


Conventional, unmodified, transition metal catalysts, substrates and reagents have sufficient solubility in sc HFC134a for organic synthesis. Reactivities (100% conversion in 2 h) and enantioselectivities (ca. 90%), comparable to those achievable in conventional organic solvents, are obtained in the asymmetric hydrogenation of a series of substrates in this alternative reaction medium using a rhodium(I)/MonoPhos catalyst.Peer-reviewedPublisher Versio
