[2,3]-Wittig rearrangement of enantiomerically enriched 3-substituted 1-propenyloxy-1-phenyl-2-propen-1-yl carbanions: effect of heteroatoms and conjugating groups on planarization of an alpha-oxy-benzylcarbanion through a double bond.

Abstract

Don't get trapped: The effect of conjugating electron-withdrawing groups and alpha-anion-stabilizing heteroatom substituents on configurational stability of chiral carbanions through a double bond was examined on the basis of extent of chirality transfer in intramolecular trapping in [2,3]-Wittig rearrangement of chiral 3-substituted 1-propenyloxy-1-phenyl-2-propen-1-yl carbanions (see scheme).The effect of conjugating electron-withdrawing groups and alpha-anion-stabilizing heteroatom substituents on configurational stability of chiral carbanions through a double bond was examined on the basis of extent of chirality transfer in intramolecular trapping in [2,3]-Wittig rearrangement of chiral 3-substituted 1-propenyloxy-1-phenyl-2-propen-1-yl carbanions.
