Our paper entitled “Mechanistic Insights and Comparative Analysis of Ru(II)-NNC Pincer Complexes with Anionic-, Protic-, and Classical-NHCs for Transfer Hydrogenation of Ketones.” has been published in Catalysis Science & Technology (DOI: 10.1039/D3CY01383A).

In this paper, a comparative analysis of the catalytic activity of Ru(II)-NNC pincer-type complexes bearing anionic-, protic- and classical-NHC ligands in transfer hydrogenation of ketones is investigated experimentally and computationally.

Kudos to Shambhu for his unwavering focus and desire for the thorough investigation of the mechanisms involved. Thanks to the Science and Engineering Research Board – SERB, and the Department of Chemistry, IIT Indore, for the support and infrastructure.
