Stereochemistry of the C addition of 1-lithio 1,1-bis methylselenoalkanes to methyl cyclohexenones

J. Lucchetti, A. Krief

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The presence of DME or HMPT allows the C regio and stereoselective introduction of 1,1-bis methylselenoalkanes to methyl cyclohexenones. The resulting compounds have been stereoselective transformed to 3-ethyl methyl cyclohexanones.
