Synthetic and catalytic intermediates in a magnesium promoted Tishchenko reaction

Abstract

Magnesium-aryloxide and -amide compounds supported by amidinate ligands are accessible in two-steps from a suitable Grignard reagent. Both species are active for the dimerization of benzaldehyde. The slower initiation by the aryloxide was exploited in the isolation of a bis-mesitylaldehyde adduct.
