  • 31 With THF, Et2O, toluene, or THF–HMPA (10:1) as solvent. All the above reactions were also tried with addition of the base to the premixed bromo ketone and electrophile. Also, extended reaction times (2‒3 d) were tried, but produced no improvement.
  • 32 The chloro ketone analogous to 26 was also formed but gave the same unexpected results during attempts to form the corresponding chloro enol triflate.
