Convergent synthesis of conjugated 1,2-disubstituted E-allylic alcohols from two aldehydes and methylenetriphenylphosphorane.
- β-Lithiooxyphosphonium ylides, made in situ from an aldehyde and methylenetriphenylphosphorane, react with a second aldehyde to form E-allylic alcohols. α-Branching and α,β-unsaturation in the second aldehyde, together with the lack of further substitution on the phosphorane carbon play important roles in selectivity. A range of these aldehydes, in addition to aromatic aldehydes as the second aldehyde also provided synthetically useful access to E-allylic alcohols.
