  1. DTBP/TBHP-Promoted Hydroacylation of Unactivated Alkenes

    Radical process: A di-tert-butyl peroxide (DTBP)-promoted intermolecular hydroacylation reaction of alkenes with aromatic aldehydes that provides ketones is described. In this study, 4-chromanones were formed when 2-(allyloxy)benzaldehydes were treated with tert-butyl hydroperoxide (TBHP). The reactions were performed under solvent- and metal-free conditions. Reactions proceeded through the generation of acyl radicals, followed by the reaction with alkenes. Remarkably, not only terminal alkenes but also internal alkenes could serve as the starting materials for intramolecular hydroacylation reaction.

    Salty but sweet: Chiral phosphonium salts from natural amino acids were applied to the asymmetric alkylation of glycine imine with substituted benzyl bromides. The desired alkylation products were obtained in high yields and excellent ee values.
