Abstract

We report herein the first synthesis of propargylic alcohols using an organic reducing agent. Diarylbutynol derivatives are formed in moderate to good yields under mild conditions from the reaction of 1-(3-chloroprop-1-ynyl)-4-nitrobenzene with various aromatic aldehydes using tetrakis(dimethylamino)ethylene (TDAE) as reductant.
Keywords: TDAE; propargylic alcohol; organic reducing agent; aromatic aldehyde TDAE; propargylic alcohol; organic reducing agent; aromatic aldehyde
