Palladium-Catalyzed β-Arylation of Cyclic α,β-Unsaturated O-Methyl Oximes with Aryl Iodides.Chem Pharm Bull (Tokyo). 2020; 68(3):288-291.CP
We report a Pd-catalyzed β-arylation of cyclic α,β-unsaturated O-methyl oximes with aryl iodides. This reaction shows complete regioselectivity and excellent functional group tolerance. β-Arylation of 2-cyclohexen-1-one O-methyl oxime (existing as 2 : 1 E/Z mixture) with certain aryl iodides such as 4-iodoanisole affords only β-arylated (E)-O-methyl oximes.
