ALKYLATION OF ACTIVE METHYLENE-COMPOUNDS BY ALLYLIC ALCOHOLS USING TETRAKIS(TRIPHENYLPHOSPHINE)PALLADIUM(0) CATALYSTS Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • We have found that active methylene compounds can be alkylated by allylic alcohols using (PPh3)4Pd as a catalyst at 100C without prior activation of the allylic hydroxy group.
