Rieke® Highly Reactive Metals

Metal-enhanced organic synthesis via organometallic intermediates is a widely used preparative route for thousands of organic compounds. However, in some cases, ordinary bulk metal forms fail to react with organic substrates. Rieke® Highly Reactive Magnesium (Mg*) and Rieke® Highly Reactive Zinc (Zn*) react efficiently with a variety of organic substrates.
