The Use of the Stille Cross-Coupling Reaction in the Prenylation of Naphthoquinones
Published: 01 November 2005 by MDPI in The 9th International Electronic Conference on Synthetic Organic Chemistry session General Organic Synthesis
Abstract: Prenylation reactions are important reactions in natural product chemistry. The Stille reaction was evaluated for the prenylation of naphthoquinones and applied to the synthesis of the natural product 2,3-bis-(3-methylbut-2-enyl)-1,4-naphthoquinone.
