*Reaction file type CDX
*Procedure Following a procedure reported by Cannon, a glass vessel was loaded with methyl ester biphenyl-dicarboxylate (2.0 g, 7.4 mmol), PtO2 (33 mg, 20 mol%), Pd/C (5% Pd, 66 mg, 0.4 mol%) and AcOH (50 mL), and the mixture was sonicated shortly. The vessel was fitted in a steel high pressure apparatus that was vented and then filled withH2 until a pressure of 350 psi was established. The reaction was heated to 50 °C and stirred for several days: addition of more gas was needed to keep the pressure at the set-point. Monitoring by GC (SD_FASTD) was carried on by letting cooling the reaction and releasing the pressure prior to sampling: after 2 d this showed 3 main peaks at 7.13, 7.29 and 7.46 min, 2 minor peaks at 7.59 and 7.74 min, and starting material as a trace at 8.56 min; after further 2 d only the three main peaks were left, and these were assigned to the three possible diastereomeric products. The mixture was filtered through filter paper (double layer), taken up in DCM (50 mL), washed with water (2 x 100 mL) and dried over MgSO4. The crude product (white solid, 1.97 g, 6.98 mmol, yield 94%) was used in the next step without further purification; the completeness of the reduction was assessed by 1H NMR from the disappearance of the aromatic signals.
*Yield (%) 94 %
*Type of Yield Crude product
