Synthesizing the synthons: The development of α-acylvinyl anion synthons has been achieved using direct α-vinyl enolization of α,β-unsaturated ketones under mild reaction conditions. The synthetic utility of such synthons has been demonstrated in intermolecular aldol and aldol condensation reactions, which provide synthetically useful allenyl ketone and enyne derivatives.
