Abstract [en]

An efficient protocol for the asymmetric reduction of sterically hindered ketones under transfer-hydrogenation conditions was developed. The corresponding chiral alcohols were obtained in good to excellent yields with enantiomeric excess values up to 99%. The role of the cation associated with the base present in the reduction reaction was investigated. In contrast to previous studies on this catalyst system, potassium ions rather than lithium ions significantly enhanced the reaction outcome.
