The review highlights the recent advances (2013-present) in the use of earth-abundant first row transition metals in homogeneous borrowing hydrogen catalysis. The utility of catalysts based on Mn, Fe, Co, Ni and Cu to promote a diverse array of important C–C and C–N bond forming reactions is described, including discussion on reaction mechanisms, scope and limitations, and future challenges in this burgeoning area of sustainable catalysis.

The search for active, inexpensive, and stable heterogeneous catalysts for organic transformation still remains challenging in both academia and industry. Herein, we present the facile fabrication of non-noble cobalt nanocomposites on N-doped hierarchical porous carbon derived from naturally renewable biomass together with Earth-abundant and low-cost cobalt salts. The whole preparation process is operationally simple and straightforward, cost-effective and environmentally benign and can be used ...

: An unprecedented one-step synthesis of N-substituted hydrazones by coupling of alcohols with hydrazine is reported. This partial hydrogen-borrowing reaction is catalyzed by a new manganese pincer complex under mild reaction conditions, thus liberating water and dihydrogen as the only byproducts. Mechanistic insight, based on the observation of intermediates, is provided.

The borrowing hydrogen (BH) principle, also called hydrogen auto-transfer, is a powerful approach which combines transfer hydrogenation (avoiding the direct use of molecular hydrogen) with one or more intermediate reactions to synthesize more complex molecules without the need for tedious separation or isolation processes. The strategy which usually relies on three steps, (i) dehydrogenation, (ii) intermediate reaction, and (iii) hydrogenation, is an excellent and well-recognized process from th...

The development of base metal catalysts for the synthesis of pharmaceutically relevant compounds remains an important goal of chemical research. Here, we report that cobalt nanoparticles encapsulated by a graphitic shell are broadly effective reductive amination catalysts. Their convenient and practical preparation entailed template assembly of cobalt-diamine-dicarboxylic acid metal organic frameworks on carbon and subsequent pyrolysis under inert atmosphere. The resulting stable and reusable ca...

Alcohols are promising sustainable starting materials because they can be obtained from abundant and indigestible biomass. The substitution of expensive noble metals in catalysis by earth abundant 3d metals, such as Mn, Fe, or Co, (nonprecious or base metals) is a related key concept with respect to sustainability. Here, we report on the first cobalt-catalyzed alkylation of secondary alcohols with primary alcohols. Easy-to-synthesize and easy-to-activate PN5P-pincer-ligand-stabilized Co complexe...

Borrowing hydrogen (or hydrogen autotransfer) reactions represent straightforward and sustainable C–N bond-forming processes. In general, precious metal-based catalysts are employed for this effective transformation. In recent years, the use of earth abundant and cheap non-noble metal catalysts for this process attracted considerable attention in the scientific community. Here we show that the selective N-alkylation of amines with alcohols can be catalysed by defined PNP manganese pincer complex...

The replacement of precious metals with inexpensive, less toxic, and earth-abundant elements in typical noble-metal-mediated organic transformations is a major goal in current synthetic chemistry and industries. The metal-catalyzed N-alkylation of amines with other amines through a “hydrogen-borrowing” principle represents a green and atom-economical reaction for the synthesis of secondary amines. However, catalysts developed thus far that are effective for this process remain quite scarce and a...

The catalytic dehydrogenative coupling of alcohols and amines to form aldimines represents an environmentally benign methodology in organic chemistry. This has been accomplished in recent years mainly with precious-metal-based catalysts. We present the dehydrogenative coupling of alcohols and amines to form imines and H2 that is catalyzed, for the first time, by a complex of the earth-abundant Mn. Detailed mechanistic study was carried out with the aid of NMR spectroscopy, intermediate isolation...

Herein, we developed a renewable carbon-supported Ru catalyst (Ru/PNC-700), which was facilely prepared via simple impregnation followed by the pyrolysis process. The prepared Ru/PNC-700 catalyst demonstrated remarkable catalytic activity in terms of conversion and selectivity towards N-alkylation of anilines with benzyl alcohol and chemoselective hydrogenation of aromatic nitro compounds. In addition, local anesthetic pharmaceutical agents (e.g., butamben and benzocaine), including key drug int...

Abstract A novel strategy involving a popping process and carbothermal reduction is developed to create a kind of stable nickel catalyst (Ni-NC). The popping process of the mixture being composed of carbon nitride (C3N4) and nickel nitrate decomposes the nickel nitrate into nickel (oxide) nanoparticles that afterwards function as catalyst to grow N-containing carbon nanotubes with carbon nitride as N-containing carbon source. Finally, the nickel catalyst possesses a special structure of nanopart...

A direct imination reaction was developed by tandem reaction of alcohols and nitro compounds in the presence of Cu-isatin Schiff base-γ-Fe2O3 as a nanomagnetically recyclable catalyst under solvent-free conditions. By this method, various imines were prepared in good to high yields from one-pot reaction of various alcohols (primary aromatic and aliphatic) and nitro compounds (aromatic and aliphatic) via an auto-hydrogen transfer reaction. Use of an inexpensive and easily reusable catalyst, witho...

Abstract A non-noble metal-based bifunctional Fe–Ni/MMT nanocomposites exhibit excellent H2 generation capability from the methanolysis of NaBH4 at a rate of 16,200 mL min−1 g−1Fe–Ni with 10%Fe–Ni loading on MMT support. Moreover, the evolved H2 from this catalytic process is efficiently utilized for the one-pot step-wise synthesis of secondary amines from nitrobenzene and aldehydes using NaBH4 as a source of hydrogen at room temperature. Circumventing the reduction of aldehyde and triggering th...

In this consequence, borrowing hydrogen and acceptorless dehydrogenative coupling principle has received significant momentum to synthesize the various alkylated molecules and N-heterocycles. In the tandem transformations and multi-component reactions, simple substrates are directly converted to the ne...
