Reagents for Asymmetric Allylation, Aldol, Tandem Aldol, Allylation Reactions

Technology #m02-043

Reagents and Their Use in Reactions with Electrophilic Compounds

The method involves preparation of chiral alcohols and hydrazines by asymmetric allylation, aldol, tandem aldol and allylation reactions using cyclic reagents containing a silicon atom.

Reagents are Stable, Low Toxicity

The reagents are less expensive and highly stable. Further, the toxicity of the reagent is very low during the process of separation and purification of the reaction products.
