Control of tandem isomerizations: flow-assisted reactions of o-lithiated aryl benzyl ethers†
Tandem chemical changes are often difficult to control at will, because they proceed rapidly through multiple unstable reactive intermediates. It is desirable to develop a novel method for controlling such tandem changes to obtain desired products with high selectivity. Herein, we report a flow microreactor platform for controlling tandem isomerizations of o-lithiated aryl benzyl ethers based on precise residence time control.
