Palladium-catalyzed, carboxylic acid-assisted allylic substitution of carbon nucleophiles with allyl alcohols as allylating agents in water.

Abstract

[structure: see text] Allylic substitution of allyl alcohols in water as a suspension medium has been realized using a combination of tetrakis(triphenylphosphine)palladium and a carboxylic acid such as 1-adamantanecarboxylic acid. Various substrates turned out to be applicable to this catalytic system.
