RUTHENIUM COMPLEX-CONTAINING CATALYST FOR HYDROGEN TRANSFER REACTION AND METHOD FOR PRODUCING HYDROGEN TRANSFER REACTION PRODUCT
This catalyst for a hydrogen transfer reaction contains a ruthenium complex represented by general formula (1) (in the formula, R1 and R2 are each independently a monovalent hydrocarbon group. Two R1s may bond to each other to form a divalent hydrocarbon group. R1 and R2 may bond to each other to form a divalent hydrocarbon group. R3 and R4 are each independently a hydrogen atom or a monovalent hydrocarbon group. R3 and R4 may bond to each other to form a divalent hydrocarbon group. R5 and R6 are each independently a monovalent linear aliphatic hydrocarbon group or alicyclic hydrocarbon group. X1 is a ligand. The bond between the nitrogen atom and the carbon atom bonding to the nitrogen atom is a double bond or a single bond
in the case where the bond is a single bond, one hydrogen atom may be bonded to the nitrogen atom between the ruthenium atom and R1. m is 0 to 2.).
