Higher Efficiently Conversion of Heterocyclic Aryl Nitroalkenes to Ketones
Dushu Huang, Jin-Gang Yu, Wei Liu, Yunhui Long and Jing Wang
Ketones were prepared by a modified Nef reaction using heterocyclic aryl nitroalkenes to react in a Fe-FeCl3-CH3COOH mixture with higher yield over 50% in sharp contrast with in Fe-HCl mixture with lower yield less than 30%, thus it’s cost-saving and relative environment friendly.
