Chemoselective Reduction of Nitroarenes with Hydrazine Over a Highly Active Alumina-Supported Cobalt Nanocatalyst

Jalal Albadi, Heshmat Allah Samimi, Mehdi Jalali


A green and efficient procedure is reported for the chemoselective reduction of nitroarenes catalyzed by a highly active alumina-supported cobalt nanocatalyst in the presence of hydrazine hydrate. The nanocatalyst can be applied under mild reflux conditions for the synthesis of arlyamines in high yields. Moreover, the catalyst can be easily recovered by simple filtration and reused several times without obvious loss in its catalytic activity.
