Asymmetric γ-Selective Pentadienylation of Aldehydes Catalyzed by BINAP•Ag(I) Complex
31 December 2000 (online)
Reaction of aldehydes with (E)-2,4-pentadienyltributyltin or trimethyltin in the presence of a catalytic amount of BINAP•silver(I) complex affords the corresponding γ-pentadienylated optically active alcohols with high enantioselectivities.
