The combination of magnesium in methanol offers an efficient, convenient, and selective method for the reduction of C=C[‌186‌] or CC[‌187‌] bonds conjugated to esters to give the saturated derivatives 159 and 160 in good yields (Scheme 43). Heteroatom-substituted esters give even better yields.[‌188‌,‌189‌] Several α,β-unsaturated esters containing distant C=C bonds or other multiple bonds are selectively reduced at the α,β-bonds using this system, leaving other functional groups unaffected.[‌190‌]
