Reductive cyclisation of propargyloxy and allyloxy α-bromoester derivatives using environmentally friendly electrochemical methodologies

Author affiliations

Abstract

The electrochemical intramolecular cyclisation of α-bromo propargyloxy (1 and 2) and allyloxy (3) esters was carried out in ethanol and in ethanolwater mixtures as environmentally friendly systems using Ni(II) complexes as the catalysts. The reduction of the substrates proceeds via one-electron cleavage of the carbon–bromine bond to form a radical-type intermediate that undergoes cyclisation to afford cyclic ethers in moderate to good yields.
