Organic Letters
B T RamanjaneyuluRamasamy Vijaya Anand


A bis(amino)cyclopropenylidene-catalyzed direct method for the synthesis of α,α'-diarylated ketones from aromatic as well as heteroaromatic aldehydes has been developed. This unprecedented organocatalytic protocol offers access to a wide range of α,α'-diarylated ketones in moderate to excellent yields under mild conditions through umpolung of aldehydes followed by 1,6-conjugate addition with para-quinone methides.
