Photoaddition reactions of 1,2-diketones with silyl ketene acetals. formation of beta-hydroxy-gamma-ketoesters.

Abstract

Photochemical reactions taking place between 1,2-diketones and silyl ketene acetals and their excited state reaction mechanisms have been explored. Irradiation of benzene, acetone, or acetonitrile solutions containing 1,2-diketones and silyl ketene acetals is observed to promote formation of 1,4-dioxenes, resulting from [4 + 2]-cycloaddition, oxetanes… (More)
