Pd-Catalyzed Enantioselective Hydroalkoxylation of Alkoxyallenes with Phenol for Construction of Acyclic O,O-Acetals

Update time: 08/25/2016

Palladium-catalyzed asymmetric intermolecular hydroalkoxylation of allenes has been developed by using phenol as a pronucleophile. Acyclic O,O-acetals were obtained in high yields (up to 98%) with good to excellent enantiomeric excesses (up to 94% ee).
