The nicotinamide coenzyme NADH, consumed in enantioselective reduction of ketones catalysed by alcohol dehydrogenases, needs to be regenerated in order to maintain enzymatic activity. We therefore studied the catalytic potential of the cationic complexes [(η5-C5Me5)Rh(N∩N)Cl]+ (1: N∩N = 1,10-phenanthroline; 2: N∩N =...
