Preparation and reactions of functionalized arylmagnesium reagents
Jensen AE., Dohle W., Sapountzis I., Lindsay DM., Vu VA., Knochel P.
Functionalized magnesium reagents have been prepared via an iodine-magnesium exchange. These reagents can be either trapped directly with aldehydes or transmetallated to copper or zinc to participate in cross-coupling reactions. The iodine-magnesium exchange, represent a unique method for the preparation of aryl and heteroaryl magnesium reagents.
