Abstract

Ketoximes successfully underwent hydrogenolysis and hydrogenation under catalytic transfer conditions with Raney Nickel® and 2-propanol as a hydrogen donor. Ketoximes were reduced to primary amines when 2% KOH was included in the reaction. In the absence of KOH N-isopropyl-secondary-amines were obtained in good yields.

Acknowledgments

Our group would like to extend our appreciation to the University of Chattanooga Foundation and the Grote Chemistry Fund for their financial backing for our research. Additionally, we would like to thank W.R. Grace Company of Chattanooga for their generous donation of Raney Nickel® catalysts.
