Description

The products of 1,4-addition of nucleophiles to α,β-unsaturated ketones are of interest as they are easily amenable to further synthetic manipulations. We have studied the utility of bismuth bromide and other Lewis acid catalysts for the conjugate addition of allyltrimethylsilanes to α,β-unsaturated ketones. Bismuth(III) compounds are especially attractive from a green chemistry perspective because they are remarkably nontoxic, non-corrosive and relatively inexpensive. The results of this study will be presented.
