Transacylation of alpha-aryl-beta-keto esters.


The acyl group of an alpha-aryl-beta-keto ester was readily transferred to N-, O-, and S-nucleophiles. The transacylation from arylated diethyl 3-oxoglutarate to amines led to unsymmetrical malonic acid amide esters in high yields. The present reaction proceeded under mild conditions without formation of detectable byproducts. Only simple experimental… (More)
