Cu-Catalyzed Stereoselective γ-Alkylation of Enones.


A general regio- and stereoselective γ-C-C bond formation is achieved using α-halocarbonyl compounds and dienol ethers via Cu(II) catalysis. This method constitutes a novel approach to the challenging 1,6-dioxygenation motif. A range of γ-substituted enones, including many bearing all-carbon quaternary centers, are available through a simple protocol under… (More)
