Abstract: The protocol of lithiation by means of lithium and a catalytic (5% molar) amount of DTBB (4,4’-di-tert-butylbiphenyl), applied to ω-chloro ortho ester 6 under Barbier-type conditions gives, after final acid-catalyzed methanolysis, the corresponding functionalized esters 8 or 9 (for chlorotrimethylsilane as electrophile) or, after ortho ester deprotection and acid catalyzed treatment, the δ-lactones 11. The procedure is also practical for bicyclic ortho esters 14: the β-chloro OBO ester derivate generates the γ- lactones 15 and the γ-chloro OBO ester gives corresponding esters 8.
Keywords: Chlorine-lithium exchange; functionalized ester; arene-catalyzed lithiation.
