Catalytic asymmetric conjugate addition of Grignard reagents to chromones

Author affiliations

Abstract

A highly regio- and enantioselective copper catalysed direct conjugate addition of Grignard reagents to chromones has been developed taking advantage of the reduced reactivity of the resulting magnesium enolates. This methodology tolerates a broad scope of alkyl Grignards including secondary alkyl magnesium reagents as well as functionalised chromones.
