Abstract

original image

Frustrated, but not frustrating: Frustrated Lewis pairs (FLPs) can undergo selective 1,4-addition reactions with conjugated ynones (see scheme). Upon FLP dihydrogen activation selective hydrogenation of the carbon–carbon triple bond can be achieved, in one case even catalytically.
