The stereochemistry of high pressure aldehyde addition to allylstannanes

Neil S. Isaacs, Raymond L. Marshall, David J. Young

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The high pressure (9 kbar, 30°C) mediated addition of benzaldehyde to allylstannane (1) occurs stereospecifically with syn approach of the electrophile. At 60°C, the reaction is less selective, probably due to some isomerization of cis (1) to trans (1). At both temperatures good erythro diastereoselectivity is observed.
