New Synthetic ‘tricks’. A Novel One-pot Procedure For The Conversion Of Primary Nitro Groups Into Aldehydes
Published 1990 · Chemistry
Abstract Two tin(II) complexes, Sn(SPh) 3 − and Sn(C 4 H 4 O 6 ) 2 2− , besides NaHSO 3 , are involved in a procedure developed for the rapid transformation at pH 5–6 of R-CH 2 -NO 2 into R-CHOH-SO 3 Na, from which the desired aldehydes have been isolated in 80–91% overall yields. Thus, a new alternative to the Nef traction is now in hand.
