A microwave-assisted mild and ecofriendly catalytic transfer hydrogenation process was developed to reduce various a,b-unsaturated carbonyl compounds into the corresponding saturated carbonyl compounds in the presence of silica-supported palladium chloride as catalyst and a combination of MeOH/HCOOH/H2O (1 : 2 : 3) as hydrogen source within 22 – 55 minutes in moderate to excellent yields with 100% chemoselectivity
