Use of an Organometallic Reagent in Water : Sc(OTf)_3-Catalyzed Allylation Reactions of Aldehydes in Micellar Systems
The Sc(OTf)<SUB>3</SUB>-catalyzed allylation reactions of aldehydes with tetraallyltin proceeded smoothly in micellar systems to afford the corresponding homoallylic alcohols in high yields. The reactions were successfully carried out in the presence of a small amount of a surfactant in water without using any organic solvents.
