Hello all,

i would like to make a complete reduction of some nitroaryl aldehydes/ketones
i have in hands without affecting an ester moiety also present in the molecule
(and the nitro group). Anybody may suggest some good procedure? Would be more
advisable to procede via reduction to the alcohol first and then go further?
Should the nitro give problems, i may think of introducing it at the very
end...

Thanks for your help!
Bye,
