Abstract

The utility of allylsamarium bromide, both as a nucleophilic reagent and a single-electron transfer reagent, in the reaction of carbonyl compounds with allylsamarium bromide in the presence of diethyl phosphate is reported in this communication. From a synthetic point of view, a simple one-pot method for the preparation of terminal olefins is developed.
