Ester reduction with manganese catalysis is enabled by balancing the reactivity of the Mn(I) species with simple bidentate P,N ligands and alkoxide base. In their Communication (http://doi.org/10.1002/anie.201701365), E. A. Pidko and co-workers report highly active Mn-based catalyst systems for selective ester hydrogenation. Their performance is the result of a delicate balance between the complex catalytic and deactivation paths, which depend on the choice of the solvent, base and the reaction conditions.
