Organolithium additions to styrene are synthetically viable

Abstract

In diethyl ether at –78 to –25 °C, styrene undergoes efficient addition reactions with a range of alkyllithium reagents, and the intermediate benzyllithiums can be trapped (e.g. with carbon dioxide and chlorotrimethylsilane); two aryl-substituted styrenes are shown to react in a similar manner.
