Selective rearrangement of terminal epoxides into methylketones catalysed by a nucleophilic rhodium-NHC-pincer complex
MetadataShow full item record
An efficient RhI–NHC–pincer catalyst for the highly regioselective Meinwald rearrangement of monoalkylated epoxides into methylketones under mild conditions is presented. The nucleophilic epoxide opening is assisted by Lewis acids.
