A reaction between (E)-trimethyl(3,3,3-trifluoroprop-1-en-1-yl)silane (1) and arylaldehydes 2 was triggered by fluoride anions to afford aryl 3,3,3-trifluoropropyl ketones 3 in moderate to good yield. A mechanistic study of this reaction indicated that it occurred via an allyl alkoxide (4). A subsequent 1,3-proton shift of the benzylic proton of 4 forms 3.(More)
A practical and highly enantioselective Reformatsky reaction of ethyl bromodifluoroacetate with imines using a cheap and commercially available amino alcohol ligand is described. A variety of α,α-difluoro-β-lactams were obtained in up to 74% yield with high enantioselectivity in excess of 99% ee. The use of ethyl bromodifluoroacetate provides for ease of(More)
An effective synthesis for syn-β-lactams was achieved using a Rh-catalyzed reductive Mannich-type reaction. A rhodium-hydride complex (Rh-H) derived from diethylzinc (Et2Zn) and a Rh catalyst was used for the 1,4-reduction of an α,β-unsaturated ester to give a Reformatsky-type reagent, which in turn, reacted with an imine to give the syn-β-lactam.(More)
