Reduction of Amides to Amines

Reduction of Amides to Amines: Introduction

Reaction principle

Amides are reduced to the corresponding amines by reaction with either metal hydrides, such as lithium aluminum hydride, or by catalytic hydrogenation. This reduction is an important process for the preparative synthesis of amines. Lactames, too, can be reduced to the corresponding pyrrolidine derivatives.
