Synthesis of functionalized 1,5-cyclooctadienes by LICKOR metalation

Revell, J. D. and Ganesan, A. (2002) Synthesis of functionalized 1,5-cyclooctadienes by LICKOR metalation Journal of Organic Chemistry, 67, (17), pp. 6250-6252. (doi:10.1021/jo025715u).

Record type: Article


1,5-Cyclooctadiene was lithiated under LICKOR superbase conditions followed by reaction with alkyl halides or ethylene oxide to yield 3-substituted 1,5-cyclooetadienes in high yield and purity. This procedure is suitable for preparation of 1,5-cyclooctadienes carrying pendant functional groups for immobilization on solid-phase resins.
