Aromatic aldehydes and ketones as well as aromatic epoxides are selectively reduced to the corresponding alcohols under mild conditions using conventional hydrogen in the presence of Pd(0)EnCat™ 30NP catalyst. The reactions were performed at room temperature during 16 hours with high to excellent conversions of the corresponding products.
