Hello,

I am having some trouble trying to reduce a benzene ring with a H3C-C=N-NH2 substituent, to a cyclohexane with the same substituent. The ring is attached to the carbon that is double bonded with the nitrogen. Apparently the hydrogenation, H2/1000psi with ru/rh at 100C, would affect the nitrogen-carbon double bond. Anyone have any ideas how to reduce without affecting the substituent? Thanks so much

    Draw every stereoisomer for 1-bromo-2-chloro-1,2-difluorocyclopentane. Use wedge-and-dash bonds for the substituent groups, and be sure that they are drawn on the outside of the ring, adjacent to each other.
