Title

A New Catalyst for the Epimerization of Secondary Alcohols: Carbon-Hydrogen Bond Activation in the Rhenium Alkoxide Complexes (η5-C5R5)Re(NO)(PPh3)(OCHRR’)

Abstract

The methoxide complexes (η5-C5R5)Re(NO)-(PPh3KOCH3) (R = H, Me) catalyze the title reaction (65-90 °C, C6H5R solvent); intermediate secondary alkoxide complexes undergo PPh3 dissociation and sequential epimerization at rhenium and carbon. © 1991, American Chemical Society. All rights reserved.
