Versatile mild Lewis acid catalyst.

Introduced by Mukaiyama to promote aldol-type reactions via tin enolates, either stoichiometrically: Tetrahedron, 40, 1381 (1984), or catalytically: Tetrahedron, 45, 1197 (1989). In the presence of a chiral amine, the reaction is enantioselective: Chem. Lett., 1209 (1991); J. Am. Chem. Soc., 113, 4247 (1991). For further discussion of this and other reactions of tin enolates, see: Encyclopedia of Reagents for Organic Synthesis, L. A. Paquette, Ed., Wiley, Chichester (1995), vol. 7, p. 4907.

In combination with a base (e.g. DBU), promotes the addition of 1-alkynes to carbonyl groups to give alkynols: J. Org. Chem., 56, 4091 (1991).

Can transfer an allyl group from a homoallylic alcohol to an aldehyde: J. Am. Chem. Soc., 120, 6609 (1998); 122, 1310 (2000).

Promotes glycosidation reactions, e.g. of acetobromoglucose to give, stereoselectively, ß-glucosides: Tetrahedron Lett., 26, 1713 (1985). Also used in a variety of other glycosidation reactions; see, e.g.: Tetrahedron Lett., 28, 5041 (1987); Chem. Lett., 1123 (1996); Liebigs Ann. Chem., 1623 (1996); Tetrahedron, 52, 3897 (1996); Eur. J. Org. Chem., 1423 (2000).

Catalyzes electrophilic sulfonylation of aromatic rings by sulfonyl chlorides, generally in good yields: Tetrahedron, 57, 241 (2001).

Reagent for selective deprotection of N-Boc groups: Synth. Commun., 33, 445 (2003).
