Competitive, substrate-dependent reductive debromination/dehydrobromination of 1,2-dibromides with triethylamine.

Abstract

The interaction of various 1,2-dibromides with NEt3 under various conditions (THF and DMF, respectively) at different temperatures was investigated. Our results from these reactions show that substrate dependent dehydrobrominations compete with reductive debrominations. A comprehensive discussion of these competitive pathways is offered.
