A. Cravador, A. Krief, L. Hevesi

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Aliphatic ketones and aromatic carbonyl compounds on reaction with methylselenol and a Lewis acid, are shown to undergo acetalisation and/or reduction to methyl selenide, the unexpected reduction reaction being predominant in most cases.
