Abstract

Abstract A truly catalytic version of MPV reduction system has been developed. Herein p-nitrobenzaldehyde has been completely reduced at room temperature within 15 minutes using catalytic amounts of aluminium isopropoxide modified by trifluoroacetic acid and just one mole equivalent of isopropyl alcohol as external hydride source.
