I can not find any good resources on the Internet except for some shady drug syntheses. I was hoping that someone could provide me with some more educational information.
I'm interested in imine-amine reduction methods, but it was hardly discussed in my class. It would be very nice if someone could explain the exact reaction mechanism of the imine-amine reduction in the presence of an aluminium amalgam.
I also found that the very dangerous compound Mercury(II) chloride was used a lot in this method and I was wondering why for example Mercury sulfide is not used, as I thought it would be a lot safer since it is hardly soluble in water and is therefore less likely to do any physical harm.
