Chemo-selective Rh-catalysed hydrogenation of azides into amines

Well done to Mattie, Helene and Abhijit for their latest paper on the use of Rh/Al2O3 as an effective chemo-selective reductive catalyst that combines the mild conditions of catalytic hydrogenation with high selectivity for azide moieties in the presence of other hydrogenolysis labile groups such as benzyl and benzyloxycarbonyl functionalities.
