The application of a monolithic triphenylphosphine reagent for conducting Ramirezgem-dibromoolefination reactions in flow

Roper, Kimberley A; Berry, Malcolm B; Ley, Steven V


The application of a monolithic form of triphenylphosphine to the Ramirez gem-dibromoolefination reaction using flow chemistry techniques is reported. A variety of gem-dibromides were synthesised in high purity and excellent yield following only removal of solvent and no further off-line purification. It is also possible to perform the Appel reaction using the same monolith and the relationship between the mechanisms of the two reactions is discussed.
