Modified Clemmensen Reduction of Some Polycyclic alkylarylketones. Comparison of Zinc Dust and Granulated Zinc Action
Published: 01 November 2005 by MDPI in The 9th International Electronic Conference on Synthetic Organic Chemistry session General Organic Synthesis
Abstract: The method for reduction of alkylaryl ketones to alkylarenes with zinc metal instead zinc amalgam was extended for polycyclic arylalkylketones derived from biphenyl and fluorene. The comparison of zinc dust and granulated zinc activity was made.
