Alkylation of active methylene compounds by allylic alcohols using tetrakis(triphenylphosphine)palladium(0) catalysts Academic Article uri icon


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