Abstract: An efficient method for the allylation of aldehydes containing a broad range of functional groups using potassium allyltrifluoroborate is described. The reaction utilizes a catalytic amount of 18-C-6 in biphasic media under open atmosphere and room temperature to provide the corresponding homoallylic alcohols in high yields and without the necessity of any subsequent purification.
Keywords: potassium allyltrifluoroborate; allylation; 18-crown-6 potassium allyltrifluoroborate; allylation; 18-crown-6
