Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Chelation-assisted Rh(I)-catalyzed ketone synthesis from allylic alcohols and alkenes through C-H and C-C bond activations under microwave irradiation was developed. Aldimine is formed via olefin isomerization of allyl alcohol under Rh(I) catalysis and condensation with 2-amino-3-picoline, followed by continuous C-H and C-C bond activations to produce a dialkyl ketone. The addition of piperidine accelerates the reaction rate by promoting aldimine formation under microwave conditions.
