Abstract

Reduction of a wide range of aldehydes and ketones with catalytic amounts of titanocene borohydride in concert with a stoichiometric poly(methylhydrosiloxane) (PMHS) reductant is reported. Preliminary mechanistic studies demonstrate that the reaction is mediated by a reactive titanocene(III) complex, whose oxidation state remains constant throughout the reaction.
