Green alcohol couplings without transition metal catalysts: base-mediated β-alkylation of alcohols in aerobic conditions

Author affiliations

Abstract

Benzylic secondary alcohols can be alkylated in good yields at the β-position with primary alcohols promoted by KOH and NaOH, eliminating the need for toxic and expensive transition metal catalysts.
