  • (2-Benzothiazolyl)methyllithium reacts quickly at low temperature (-78 o ) with a variety of organic electrophiles like aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic esters, nitriles and acyl chlorides. Such reactions lead to an easy introduction of alcohol, keto-enol or amine-enamine functional groups in extracyclic position with a stereoselective preference. These polyfunctional compounds whose synthesis is difficult by other pathways, are interesting, in particular, because of their ability to form… CONTINUE READING
