Abstract

New water-soluble monotosylated ethylenediamines containing quaternary ammonium groups were conveniently synthesized from ethylenediamine. The ruthenium catalysts prepared in situ from ruthenium complex [RuCl2(p-cymene)]2 and water-soluble monotosylated ethylenediamine ligands were used in transfer hydrogenation of aldehydes, and excellent conversions and chemoselectivities were achieved with sodium formate as reductant in neat water.

Keywords
