Abstract

Cobalt-rhodium heterobimetallic nanoparticles catalyze a tandem reductive amination of aldehydes with nitroaromatics without any additives under mild conditions (1 atm H2 and 25 C). This procedure can be scaled up to the gram scale, and the catalyst can be reused more than six times without loss of activity.
