Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Dichloromethane is shown to be a useful solvent in catalytic hydrogenation reactions of easily reduced functional groups (alkenes, alkynes, imines, and nitroarenes) using palladium on carbon as the catalyst under mild conditions (ambient pressure and temperature).
