Z-alkenes are present in many biologically and pharmaceutically active compounds, and are produced in several bulk and fine chemical processes. Therefore, the development of a convenient method for the synthesis of these compounds, especially at the laboratory scale, is intensively studied. Ruben Drost studies the semihydrogenation reaction of alkynes toward Z-alkenes with (PdNHC) precatalysts.
