Michael Schedler, Dr. Duo-Sheng Wang and Prof. Dr. Frank Glorius NHC-Catalyzed Hydroacylation of Styrenes Angewandte Chemie International Edition 52
New hydroacylation catalysts: Highly electron-rich N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHCs) facilitate the intermolecular hydroacylation of unstrained olefins. This unprecedented organocatalytic coupling joins simple and abundant aldehydes and styrenes to yield valuable ketone products. EWG=electron-withdrawing group, EDG=electron-donating group.
