Rhodium-catalyzed redox allylation reactions of ketones

Author affiliations


Ketones react with allyl acetate to generate tertiary homoallylic alcohols in the presence of a rhodium catalyst and bis(pinacolato)diboron. A range of substrates, including aryl, alkyl and cyclic ketones react smoothly under these conditions. Diastereoselective allylation reactions of functionalized ketones such as pregnenolone acetate are also reported.
