Abstract: A microwave-assisted HWE olefination process of readily accessible aryl-alkyl ketones has been developed to provide a rapid access to (Z)-3,3-trisubstituted-α,β-unsaturated methyl esters, key building blocks for the synthesis of biologically active compounds.
Keywords: (Z)-3,3-trisubstituted α,β-unsaturated methyl esters; aryl-alkyl ketones; Horner–Wadsworth-Emmons reaction; microwave-assisted reactions
