This thesis documents the development of rhodium-catalyzed traceless chelation-controlled hydroacylation reactions for the synthesis of a variety of ketone products.
Chapter 1 provides an overview of rhodium-catalyzed hydroacylation chemistry, focusing on the origin of chelation-controlled strategies and the benefits thereof.
Chapter 2 describes a sequential reaction involving alkene hydroacylation, sulfide elimination and boronic acid conjug...Expand abstract
