Catalytic amounts of titanocene(III) borohydride, generated under mild conditions from commercially available titanocene dichloride, in concert with a stoichiometric hydride source is shown to effectively reduce aldehydes and ketones to their respective alcohols in aprotic media.

Catalytic carbonyl hydrosilylations viaa titanocene borohydride–PMHS reagent system


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.

Phenyl methanol (2-c)
Phenyl methanol (2-c) was prepared from benzaldehyde (1-c) by the procedure outlined
in GP1. NMR analysis showed 100% conversion in 1 hour. 86% isolated yield of alcohol
product was obtained after complete workup.
1H NMR (400 MHz, CDCl3) δ 7.37 – 7.26 (m,5H), 4.59 (s, 2H), 2.99 (s, 1H).
13C NMR (101 MHz, CDCl3) δ 140.92, 128.56, 127.60, 127.07,77.52, 77.20, 76.88, 65.04.
