A coherent study on the Z-enoate assisted Meyer–Schuster rearrangement

Author affiliations

Abstract

A systematic study has been performed on the Z-enoate assisted Meyer–Schuster rearrangement of propargylic alcohols. The impact of various factors such as temperature, solvent, concentration of a counter ion of an acid, and the nature of the arene nucleophile was studied. The relative nucleophilicity of various arenes estimated in this study is in good agreement with that of Herbert Mayr's nucleophilicity scale.
