Abstract

(Chemical Equation Presented) Use of Ru/CNF-P, nanoruthenium particles dispersed on a nanocarbon fiber support, realizes highly efficient catalytic partial hydrogenation of 1,1′-bi-2-naphthol and -naphthylamine derivatives. The reactions proceed in high turnover numbers without racemization of the axial chirality, offering a practical procedure for the production of optically pure 5,5′,6,6′,7,7′,8,8′-octahydro-1,1′- binaphthyls in good to high yields.
