π-Activated alcohols: an emerging class of alkylating agents for catalytic Friedel–Crafts reactions

Author affiliations

Abstract

The direct functionalization of aromatic compounds, via Friedel–Crafts alkylation reactions with alcohols, is one of the cornerstones in organic chemistry. The present emerging area deals with the recent advances in the use of π-activated alcohols in the catalytic and stereoselective construction of benzylic stereocenters.
