Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

Michael additions of α-nitroesters with enones and α,β-unsaturated aldehydes result in quantitative conversions to the corresponding 1,4-adducts by performing the reactions in water in the presence of ytterbium triflate as water-tolerant Lewis acid.
