Organocatalytic cyclopropanation of (E)-Dec-2-enal: Synthesis, spectral analysis and mechanistic understanding

Organocatalytic cyclopropanation of (E)-Dec-2-enal: Synthesis, spectral analysis and mechanistic understanding
Organocatalytic cyclopropanation of (E)-Dec-2-enal: Synthesis, spectral analysis and mechanistic understanding
An undergraduate experiment combining synthesis, NMR analysis and mechanistic understanding is reported. The students perform an organocatalyzed cyclopropanation reaction of (E)-dec-2-enal and are then required to determine the diastereoselectivity and assign the relative configuration of each product using NMR spectroscopy.

Abstract

An undergraduate experiment combining synthesis, NMR analysis and mechanistic understanding is reported. The students perform an organocatalyzed cyclopropanation reaction of (E)-dec-2-enal and are then required to determine the diastereoselectivity and assign the relative configuration of each product using NMR spectroscopy.
