- Platinum Metals in the Asymmetric Isomerization of Allylic Alcohols
Luca Mantilli, Clément Mazet*
Chem. Lett. 2011, 40, 341-344
Past and recent advances in the metal-catalyzed asymmetric isomerization of allylic alcohols into carbonyl compounds are discussed in the present Highlight. Emphasis is placed on rhodium, ruthenium, and iridium; the only three metals that have proven successful to date for this most challenging transformation.
