Simple and expeditious pinacol coupling of non usual α,β-unsaturated carbonyl compounds in water

Author affiliations

Abstract

Using zinc (0) in a 5% v AcOH aqueous solution allowed the efficient pinacol coupling of aliphatic or aromatic unusual, α,β-unsaturated carbonyl compounds such as citral A in good to excellent yields (56–99%). It can also be successfully applied to acetophenone.
