SmI2-promoted Reformatsky-type reaction and acylation of alkyl 1-chlorocyclopropanecarboxylates



SmI2-promoted Reformatsky-type reaction and acylation of alkyl 1-chlorocyclopropanecarboxylates



Organic Letters 10(23): 5453-5456



In the presence of HMPA in THF, highly stereoselective SmI(2)-promoted substitutions of alkyl 1-chlorocyclopropanecarboxylates 1 using various ketones, aldehydes (Reformatsky-type reaction), and acyl chlorides (acylation) proceeded to give trans-adducts (2 or 5) in good to high yield with excellent trans-stereoselectivity (trans-add/cis-add = > 99/1). The Reformatsky-type reaction of 1 with aldehydes and unsymmetrical ketones proceeded with moderate diastereoselectivity (re-face-adduct/si-face-adduct = 60/40-75/25).
