Aldehydes as metal surrogates for reductions – AldyRed

Submission summary

AldyRed is a fundamental research project with a long-term aim: to enable the replacement of reducing metals and organometallics in organic chemistry by aldehydes, in other words, by organic synthons that lead to valuable products upon oxidation (and not metallic wastes) and could stem from sustainable sources. On the basis of promising recent preliminary results, the project especially focuses on N-heterocyclic stable carbenes as organocatalysts that can activate aldehydes and their derivatives to form electron-rich enaminol intermediates. Aldyred will address the fundamental obstacles on the road to the design of versatile organocatalyzed reductions with aldehydes as formal highly-reducing agents, with the ultimate goal to offer a paradigm-shift in sustainable reductive transformations.
