Introduction

Allyltributylstannane is a valuable reagent in organic synthesis. This reagent is a colorless liquid and stable towards air, heat, and hydrolysis. It is commercially available and has been widely used in organic synthesis as powerful reagent for C-C bond-forming reactions. Transmetallation, nucleophilic substitution, stereoselective carbonyl addition, and transition-metal- or radical-mediated substitution reactions have been accomplished using allyltributylstannane. [1] Although this reagent is mainly used in allylation reactions, other reactions such as cyclization and Diels-Alder reactions are also carried out using this reagent.
