Abstract

A mild and practically-convenient one-pot procedure for the direct b-substitution of enones has been developed using a conjugate addition–oxidation strategy with a full range of copper-based reagents and N-tert-butylphenylsulfinimidoyl chloride; alkyl- and aryl-substituted enones are delivered in good to excellent yields.
