Abstract

The adducts between ketones and the anion derived from [(methoxymethyl)sulfonyl]benzene undergo efficient, regioselective rearrangement to give alpha-methoxyketones when treated with ZrCl4 and HfCl4; this new procedure allows the sulfone-mediated homologation methodology to be applied to monocyclic and acyclic ketones.
