The α-alkylation of ketones using hydrogen borrowing catalysis

Abstract:

Introduction – Hydrogen Borrowing Alkylation Reactions Using Alcohols

The introduction reviews the origins of hydrogen borrowing catalysis and how it has been applied to utilise alcohols as alkylating agents. The predominant focus is on highlighting the scope for the use of primary alcohols in the α-alkylation of ketones. Other nucleophiles are discussed with respect to the use of secondary alcohols as alkylating agents. Examples of related methodologies are also briefly disc...
