Simple and cheap alcohols can promote the direct arylation of unactivated arenes with aryl iodides and bromides in the presence of potassium tert-butoxide. This transition-metal-free aromatic C-H transformation offers a cheap and easy practical way to synthesize biaryls under mild...

The usefulness of the potassium tert-butoxide/dimethyl sulphoxide/ethyl iodide reaction with carbamate and phenylurea herbicides, and its application to phenoxy acids as a way to prevent hazards and toxicity of the sodium hydride/dimethyl sulphoxide/methyl iodide reaction was studied. Using factorial design...

This paper chronicles the conceptual development, proof of principle experiments, and recent advances in the palladium-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions of the conjugate bases of organosilanols. The discovery that led to the design and refinement of this process represents a classical illustration...

3-Aryltetronic acids were prepared in one step by treatment of a mixture of methyl arylacetates and methyl hydroxyacetates with potassium tert-butoxide, via tandem transesterification/Dieckmann condensation. Several mushroom or lichen pigments, vulpinic acids, were synthesized from 3-(4-methoxyphenyl)tetronic acid in three steps...

The regio- and diastereoselective silaboration of aromatic alkenes with a silylboron compound proceeds in the presence of a catalytic amount of potassium tert-butoxide, providing a complementary method to the corresponding transition metal-catalyzed reactions.
