Probing Parallel Kinetic Resolution of 1-Phenyethanol using Active Esters as Quasi-Enantiomers
Published: 30 October 2010 by MDPI in The 14th International Electronic Conference on Synthetic Organic Chemistry session General Organic Synthesis
Abstract: The parallel kinetic resolution of racemic secondary arylalkyl alcohols using an equimolar amount of quasi-enantiomeric active esters and zinc chloride is discussed. The levels of enantiomeric recognition were high leading to enantiomerically enriched alcohols in good yield.
