Carbon-carbon bond formations using organolithium reagents

  title={Carbon-carbon bond formations using organolithium reagents},
  author={Dorus Heijnen},
Novel methodologies for the formation of carbon-carbon bond formations. Organolithium reagents are highly reactive compounds, but once their reactivity can be controlled, they have proven to be excellent coupling partners in the synthesis of a variety of molecules. Because of their reactivity, these novel reactions can be carried out at low temperatures, and with remarkable speed. Even at room temperature, some reactions proceed in just 5 seconds. This is also the fastest coupling reaction… CONTINUE READING
