Abstract

The reduction of nitro compounds, both aliphatic and aromatic into corresponding amines has been achieved at room temperature in good yields by employing ammonium formate in the presence of low cost magnesium powder. The hydrogenation is fast and selective in the presence of other sensitive functionalities such as halogens, -OH, -OCH3, -CN, -COOR, -COOH etc. It was observed that, this system is equally compatible with existing methods, which employ expensive catalysts like palladium, platinum, ruthenium etc.
