Abstract

The potassium-mediated magnesiation of anisole has been monitored by a combination of X-ray crystallographic and NMR spectroscopic studies. Departing from a heteroleptic alkyl-amido base and anisole, the reaction first stops at an ortho-magnesiated anisole intermediate, but the final destination is an ortho-magnesiated anisole complex with reincorporation of the amine ligand and elimination of alkane (see picture).
