An efficient dehydroxymethylation reaction by a palladium catalyst

Author affiliations

Abstract

A general method for selective dehydroxymethylation has been discovered by using widely available Pd(OAc)2. The present study offers a new synthetic strategy for the regioselective functionalization by employing the steric, electronic and coordinating nature of the hydroxymethyl (–CH2OH) group temporarily.
