Microwave-accelerated cross-metathesis reactions of N-allyl amino acid substrates.
MetadataShow full item record
Microwave heating has been utilised for the cross metathesis reaction of N-allyl amino acid substrates to generate olefin homodimers. Remarkable acceleration of the cross metathesis reaction (minutes compared to hours) over conventional reflux heating was observed. In addition, improved reaction yields and similar E/Z ratios for the cross metathesis products were achieved.
