Regio- and chemoselective rearrangement of terminal epoxides into methyl alkyl and aryl ketones

Author affiliations

Abstract

The development of the highly active pincer-type rhodium catalyst 2 for the nucleophilic Meinwald rearrangement of functionalised terminal epoxides into methyl ketones under mild conditions is presented. An excellent regio- and chemoselectivity is obtained for the first time for aryl oxiranes.
