A cooperative effect is seen whereby the unusual Z-content is further augmented if the ylide bears greater steric bulk in the α′-position. These results are consistent with our previous observations on reactions of all ylide types with aldehydes bearing a β-heteroatom. Significantly, the cooperative effect, previously seen only with semi-stabilised ylides, has now been extended to stabilised ylides. Both the anomalous increase in Z-content and the cooperative effect can be rationalised within the [2+2] cycloaddition mechanism of the Wittig reaction.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Elsevier||Copyright (published version):||2012 Elsevier Ltd||Keywords:||Wittig reaction mechanism;Keto-stabilised phosphonium ylide;ortho-Substituted benzaldehydes;Kinetic control in Wittig reactions;Z-Alkene;[2+2] Cycloaddition||DOI:||10.1016/j.tetlet.2012.09.123||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
