A system consisting of a chiral lithium amide and n-BuLi in tol-d(8) solution was investigated with (1)H and (13)C INEPT DOSY, (6)Li and (15)N NMR, and other 2D NMR techniques. A mixed 2:1 trimeric complex was identified as the major...

A procedure for the coupling of aliphatic imines with allylic and allenic alkoxides is described. The success of these studies was enabled by a unique reactivity profile of Ti(IV) isopropoxide/n-BuLi compared to well-known Ti(IV) isopropoxide/RMgX systems.

The effects of lithium dialkylamide structure, mixed aggregate formation, and solvation on the stereoselectivity of ketone enolization were examined. Of the lithium dialkylamides examined, lithium tetramethylpiperidide (LiTMP) in THF resulted in the best enolization selectivity. The stereoselectivity was further improved...

A diamine-free protocol for the s-BuLi-mediated lithiation-trapping of N-Boc heterocycles has been developed. In the optimized procedure, lithiation is accomplished using s-BuLi in THF at -30 °C for only 5 or 10 min. Subsequent electrophilic trapping or transmetalation-Negishi coupling delivered...

Treatment of dimethyl sulfoxide with butyllithium leads to rapid formation of lithium methylsulfinyl carbanion. The reaction products tend to be significantly freer from impurities when lithium methylsulfinyl carbanion is used rather than sodium or potassium methylsulfinyl carbanion. This reagent gives...
