Abstract

As the aluminate base [LiAl(TMP)(2)(iBu)(2)] 1 displays halogen tolerance towards substituted aromatics, 4-halo-anisoles have been ortho-aluminated and electrophilically quenched to form synthetically useful multi-heterohalogenated anisoles, with the Al intermediates along the route structurally defined.
