Birch reductions at room temperature with alkali metals in silica gel (Na2K-SG(I))



Birch reductions at room temperature with alkali metals in silica gel (Na2K-SG(I))



Journal of Organic Chemistry 74(16): 5790-5792



Alkali metals in silica gel (the Na(2)K-SG(I) reagent) cleanly effect Birch reductions of substrates with at least two or more aromatic rings. The reaction conditions are alcohol-free, ammonia-free, and achieve excellent yields and high selectivities at room temperature.
