Efficient addition of alcohols, amines and phenol to unactivated alkenes by Au(III) or Pd(II) stabilized by CuCl2.

Abstract

The nucleophilic addition of alcohols, amines and phenol to unactivated alkenes catalyzed by cationic gold and palladium becomes limited due to the fast reduction into metallic gold under reaction conditions. The presence of CuCl2 retards the reduction of Au(III) and Pd", strongly increasing the turnover number of gold and palladium catalysts. It is shown… (More)
