Synthesis of diaryl ketonesvia a phosphine-free Fukuyama reaction

Author affiliations

Abstract

The synthesis of unsymmetrical diaryl ketonesvia the Fukuyama coupling of thioesters and organozinc reagents is described. Typically, the synthesis of diaryl ketones using this methodology provides low yields. The simple complex, Pd(dba)2, was found to convert a variety of aryl thioesters to diaryl ketones in good yields.
