Preparation of m-Acylphenol Derivatives by the Reaction of Tricarbonyl(cyclohexadienone)iron Complex and Higher Order Cuprates
Reaction of tricarbonyl[(2,3,4,5-η)-2,4-cyclohexadien-1-one]iron and higher order cuprates followed by the treatment with acetic anhydride and then with carbon monoxide affords tricarbonyl[(1,2,3,4-η)-1-acetoxy-5-<I>endo</I>-acyl-1,3-cyclohexadiene]iron complexes in good yield, which are converted to <I>meta</I>-acylphenol derivatives by the oxidation with trimethylamine <I>N</I>-oxide.
