An Efficient Method for One-Pot Reductive Cleavage of Acetals to Primary Alcohols Using a Bimetal Redox Couple CoCl2.6H2O-Zn
Abstract:Acyclic or cyclic O,O-acetals and O,S-acetals underwent reductive cleavage to give primary alcohols efficiently on treatment with Zn-CoCl2.6H2O-bimetal redox system in dry tetrahydrofuran at ambient temperature to give good to excellent yields.
