Abstract

8-Quinolinyl alkyl ketones, in which the alkyl group has β-hydrogens, react with various Rh| and lr| complexes under ethylene to give, in a catalytic process, 8-quinolinyl ethyl ketone; the same reaction with 8-quinolinyl phenyl ketone produces styrene via ethylene insertion into a rhodium-phenyl bond and β-elimination of the resulting phenylethyl complex.
