Palladium complex catalyzed acylation of allylic esters with acylsilanes.


Acylation of allylic esters (2) with acylsilanes (1) in the presence of a catalytic amount (5 mol %) of a palladium complex is reported. The reaction proceeds selectively to afford beta,gamma-unsaturated ketones (3) in high yields. [Pd(eta3-C6H5CH=CHCH2)(CF3COO)]2 (4a) showed the best catalytic activity. After the reaction, formation of CF3COOSiMe3 (5a) was… (More)
