Applications

The catalytic system of disubstituted aromatics was optimized for the 2-methylanisole reduction by a proper choice of the amine/Rh ratio which should be high enough to stabilize very small colloidal rhodium particles and low enough to avoid deactivation. The total synthesis of (±)-heliannuol D and its epimer has been completed in 9 steps and 12% overall yield from 2-methylanisole. The thermal activation of 2-methylanisole (60°C) by the Ir (III) complex TpMe2Ir (C6H5) 2 (N2)(1; TpMe2= hydrotris (3, 5-dimethylpyrazolyl) borate) yielded a mixture of hydride complexes. The total synthesis of the phenolic sesquiterpene mutisianthol has been accomplished in 12 steps from the readily available 2-methylanisole. The catalytic system was optimized for the 2-methylanisole reduction by a proper choice of the amine/Rh ratio which should be high enough to stabilize very small colloidal rhodium particles and low enough to avoid deactivation.

Notes

Store in cool place. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Store away from strong oxidizing agents.
