Selective Iron-Mediated C- and O-Addition of Phenolic Nucleophiles to a Cyclohexadiene Scaffold Using Renewable Precursors
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2019

Renewable phenols have been investigated as nucleophiles for the addition to a cationic cyclohexadienyl iron carbonyl scaffold. Benign conditions compatible with solvents such as ethanol and water were developed, and for the first time, selective C- or O-addition could be achieved. In addition, a novel atom-economic approach to forming the C-addition products directly from the neutral precursor complex in a single step using a catalytic acid is described. The formed C-addition product could then be selectively demetalated to form one of two different product classes, a functionalized arene or a cyclohexadiene.
