A new article from our group has been published! The article, based on part of Práxedes PhD Thesis, has been published in Dalton Trans. It deals with ruthenium catalysts bearing lutidine-derived pincer ligands with an amine proton-responsive site for the hydrogenation and dehydrogenation of N-heterocycles.
“Hydrogenation/dehydrogenation of N-heterocycles catalyzed by ruthenium complexes based on multimodal proton-responsive CNN(H) pincer ligands”
Congratulations to everyone!

Abstract: Ru complexes based on lutidine-derived pincer CNN(H) ligands having secondary amine side donors are efficient precatalysts in the hydrogenation and dehydrogenation of N-heterocycles. Reaction of a Ru-CNN(H) complex with an excess of base produces the formation of a Ru(0) derivative, which is observed under catalytic conditions.
