A method has been developed for the in situ sulfidation of Pd/C under continuous flow. The approach provides a cheap, sustainable, and operationally convenient method for chemoselective conjugate reduction by continuous hydrogenation. High conversions and excellent selectivities were obtained for olefin reduction in α/β-unsaturated carbonyl compounds in the presence of hydrogenatively sensitive functionalities. The methodology was analyzed with a green metric system to highlight the sustainability features of the process.
