Rosenmund reduction



The Rosenmund reduction is a chemical reaction that reduces an acid halide to an aldehyde using hydrogen gas over palladium-on-carbon poisoned with barium sulfate.[1][2][3] The reaction was named after Karl Wilhelm Rosenmund.

Additional recommended knowledge

The catalyst must be poisoned because otherwise the catalyst is too active and will reduce the acid chloride to a primary alcohol.

Diisobutylaluminium hydride (DIBALH) can also reduce acid chlorides to aldehydes.
