Aza-Henry Reactions on C-Alkyl Substituted Aldimines
AbstractThe reactivity of C-CH3 substituted N-protected aldimines in aza-Henry addition reactions was compared with that of the analogous trifluoromethylated compounds. C-Alkyl aldimines easily reacted with nitro alkanes under solvent-free conditions and in the absence of catalyst, despite being worse electrophiles than C-CF3 aldimines, they gave the aza-Henry addition only when ZrCl4 was added. The presence of a bulky group on the imine carbon deeply influenced the reactivity. View Full-Text
