Abstract

(Chemical Equation Presented) Easy-to-prepare solutions of LnCl 3·2 LiCl (Ln = La, Ce, Nd) (0.3-0.5 M in THF) are a unique source of soluble lanthanide salts with versatile applications in organic synthesis. These salts can serve as promoters or catalysts for the addition of organometallic compounds to sterically hindered, enolizable or α,β-unsaturated ketones or imines.
