Role Of The Iridium-Nitrogen Interaction In Catalytic Transfer Hydrogenation

Transfer hydrogenation is the process of adding hydrogen to a molecule from a non H2 source. This process is more efficient than direct hydrogenation because the non H2 sources are more readily available and inexpensive compared to H2 sources. Many different metal catalyst attached to ligands have been used to determine which is best for the reaction as well as the most efficient way to get to the end product. We will use an iridium catalyst along with a non H2 source to determine which hydrogen from the source goes where on the molecule. In addition to finding out if this process is going to be stepwise or concerted.
