Pinacol Coupling of Aromatic Aldehydes Using TiCl3-Al-H2O Under Ultrasound Irradiation
Abstract:Titanium trichloride in H2O can be reduced by Al to the corresponding low valent titanium complexes, which can reduce some aromatic aldehydes and ketones to the corresponding pinacols in 15-83% yields within 25-100 min at r.t.under ultrasound irradiation.
