Vinylboranes as trans-dihydroxyethylene equivalents for diels-alder reactions Academic Article uri icon


  • Several vinylboranes were explored as trans-1,2-dihydroxyethylene equivalents for Diels-Alder reactions. Use of the 1,2-bis(boryl)ethylene 4 allows the direct formation of 1,2-dihydroxycyclohexenes in high yield. The 2-phenyldimethylsilylvinylborane 8 is a good alternative that allows for hydroxyl-group differentiation. © 1994.
