Abstract

Two six-membered heterocyclic organic reductants, 1-acetyl-2,3-dimethyltetrahydropyrimidine (ADMP) and 1-tosyl-2,3-dimethyltetrahydropyrimidine (TDMP), were designed and synthesized for transfer hydrogenation. It was shown that both the two reductants could directly reduce a variety of aldehydes and imines to the corresponding saturated products in good yields.
