Acylation of Grignard reagents mediated by N-methylpyrrolidone: A remarkable selectivity for the synthesis of ketones

Author affiliations

Abstract

An efficient user-friendly method of acylation of Grignard reagents to selectively synthesize ketones is presented, which is assisted by simple amides such as NMP, or DMF. The present chemoselective method tolerates a variety of functional groups such as ketone, ester, nitrile and other functional groups.
