Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A one-pot oxidation/allylation/oxidation procedure has been developed for the conversion of primary alcohols into beta,gamma-unsaturated ketones. The methodology has been applied to a range of alcohols, and in some cases, isomerisation to produce the corresponding alpha,beta-unsaturated ketones has been carried out. (C) 2011 Elsevier Ltd.
