Abstract

Double role for sodium: Within a synergic sodium TMP-zincate reagent, sodium mediates the direct ortho-zincation of chlorobenzene and delivers the TMEDA ligand to nucleophilically attack the benzene ring, thereby generating novel open and cyclic zinc zwitterions (example shown). TMP=2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidide; TMEDA=N,N,N,N-tetramethylethylenediamine.
