Abstract

Chiral dipyridylphosphine ligand P-Phos was used in the Ru catalyzed asymmetric hydrogenation of α- and β-keto esters in room temperature ionic liquids (RTILs) with high conversions and good to excellent enantioselectivities. The catalyst was recycled by simple extraction and reused five times without loss of activity and enantioselectivity.
