Application

Methyl crotonate was used to investigate chemoselectivity in the reaction between methyl crotonate and benzylamine catalyzed by lipase B from Candida antarctica using solvent engineering. It was used as starting reagent during the total synthesis of phytotoxins solanapyrones D(1) and E(2).

General description

Methyl crotonate undergoes vinylogous aldol reaction with enolizable aldehydes in the presence of aluminum tris(2,6-di-2-naphthylphenoxide).
