Rieke® and Organozinc Reagents

Organozinc reagents, first prepared by Frankland in 1848, are employed in numerous organic transformations such as cross-coupling reactions, Michael reactions and other conjugate additions, and electrophilic amination reactions. These organometallic reagents are compatible with a broad spectrum of functional groups. Interestingly, the choice of a preparative route to organozinc products does play an important role in their subsequent reactivity and stability. Sigma-Aldrich offers a comprehensive line of Rieke® Organozincs that are stable as solutions in tetrahydrofuran.
