Conjugate addition of a phosphorus ylide to 3-cyanochromone

Gabbutt, C. D., Heron, B. M., Hursthouse, M. B. and Malik, K. M. A. (2000) Conjugate addition of a phosphorus ylide to 3-cyanochromone Phosphorus, Sulfur, and Silicon and the Related Elements, 166, pp. 99-109.

Record type: Article


Reaction of 3-cyanochromane with methylenetriphenylphosphorane yields the stabilised ylide (4) by way of a conjugate addition and subsequent ring opening. Variable temperature H-1 NMR spectroscopy indicates that this ylide undergoes rapid conformational interconversion at ambient temperature. X-ray crystallography established that (4) exists as the (E) isomer in the solid state.
