The Lewis acidic activation of a hypervalent iodine reagent containing a transferable cyano group, 1-cyano-3,3-dimethyl-3-(1H)-1,2-benziodoxole (CDBX), with B(C6F5)3, to achieve the catalytic electrophilic cyanation of silyl enol ethers is presented. Mechanistic studies indicate that CDBX is activated through coordination of its cyano group to B(C6F5)3,(More)
The highly efficient electrophilic cyanation of boron enolates using readily available cyanating reagents, N-cyano-N-phenyl-p-toluenesulfonamide (NCTS) and p-toluenesulfonyl cyanide (TsCN), is reported. Various β-ketonitriles were prepared by this new protocol, which has a remarkably broad substrate scope compared to existing methods. The present method(More)
A straightforward synthesis of 1,2-dicyanoalkanes by reacting nitroalkenes with trimethylsilyl cyanide in the presence of tetrabutylammonium fluoride is described. The reaction proceeds through a tandem double Michael addition under mild conditions. Employing the hypervalent silicate generated from trimethylsilyl cyanide and tetrabutylammonium fluoride is(More)
