SmI2-promoted Reformatsky-type coupling reactions in exceptionally hindered contexts



SmI2-promoted Reformatsky-type coupling reactions in exceptionally hindered contexts



Organic Letters 10(6): 1291-1294



Highly substituted, very hindered enones were synthesized using a two-step procedure that utilizes a diiodosamarium-promoted Reformatsky-type coupling and dehydration using Martin sulfurane. Both alpha-chloro- and alpha-bromoketones were coupled with a variety of carbonyl nucleophiles to form the intermediate beta-hydroxyketones, occurring with excellent diastereoselectivity, favoring the syn isomer (R1=Me). This technique complements other methods and enables the preparation of enones outside of the scope of current olefination methodology.
