Highly Versatile Catalyst for Chemoselective Hydrogenations

  • Safe and nonpyrophoric
  • Trivial removal of catalyst from reactor
  • Very low metal contamination of product
  • Excellent catalyst recyclability
  • Highly chemoselective under both hydrogenation & transfer hydrogenation conditions
  • Excellent batch-to-batch reproducibility of catalyst activity

Pd(0) EnCat™ 30NP is a new microencapsulated hydrogenation catalyst offering key advantages over existing heterogeneous hydrogenation catalysts. Reductive transformations catalyzed by Pd(0) EnCat™ 30NP include aryl ketones, aldehydes, and epoxides to the corresponding alcohols; nitroarenes and aryl nitriles to the corresponding amines; alkenes and alkynes to the corresponding alkanes; and the debenzylation of aryl benzyl ethers.
