Carbometalation of unactivated alkenes by zinc enolate derivatives

Author affiliations

Abstract

The carbometalation reaction of zinc enolates and related stabilised organometallics on unactivated double bonds has emerged over the past decade as a mechanistically interesting and synthetically useful reaction. This Perspective is devoted to these challenging and apparently contra-thermodynamic transformations, with a special focus on recent mechanistic considerations involving radical–polar crossover reaction pathways.
