Metal-Free Microwave-Assisted Decarboxylative Elimination for the Synthesis of Olefins.

Abstract

A metal-free efficient synthesis of olefins via microwave-assisted direct decarboxylative elimination of arylacetic acids is described. This reaction, using commercially available reagent PIFA as oxidant, readily provides a variety of desired products in moderate to good yields.
