A rhodium(III)-catalyzed C-H direct allylation reaction with 4-vinyl-1,3-dioxolan-2-ones has been developed. The reaction provides a facile and stereoselective access to substituted-(E)-allylic alcohols under mild and redox-neutral reaction conditions. Olefinic C-H activation is applicable, giving multifunctionalized skipped dienes in good yields. Minimal(More)
The prenyl group is an important component in bioactive compounds. Herein, we report the assembly of prenylated heteroarenes through a cascade Minisci reaction and acid-promoted dehydration sequence. The use of potassium (3-hydroxy-3-methylbut-1-yl)trifluoroborate as a new coupling reagent allows the direct introduction of prenyl and 3-hydroxy-3-methylbutyl(More)
The synthesis of halogenated and trifluoromethylated α-boryl ketones via a one-pot oxidative difunctionalization of alkenyl MIDA boronates is reported. These novel densely functionalized organoborons bearing synthetically and functionally valuable carbonyl, halogen/CF3 and boronate moieties within the same molecule are synthetically challenging for the(More)
The individual molecules of α-chloroalkenyl boronates include both an electrophilic C-Cl bond and a nucleophilic C-B bond, which makes them intriguing organic synthons. Reported herein is a stereodivergent synthesis of both E and Z α-chloroalkenyl N-methyliminodiacetyl (MIDA) boronates through the direct chlorination of alkenyl MIDA boronates using tBuOCl(More)
A simple and efficient method for the synthesis of diaryl 1,2-diketones has been developed. The reaction represents the first example of diaryl 1,2-diketones that are synthesized directly from arylboronic acids and arylpropiolic acids by a radical pathway in moderate to good yields. This reaction proceeds under mild reaction conditions and with good(More)
