An efficient diastereoselective Michael addition of the commercial potassium O–ethyl dithiocarbonate to Baylis–Hillman adducts in the presence of 9–BBN (9–borabicyclo[3.3.1]nonane) as a Lewis acid is reported. 9–BBN both protected the hydroxyl group and activated the carbonyl of the Michael acceptor.

Keywords: Xanthates; Baylis–Hillman adducts; 9–BBN as a Lewis acid.



En este artículo se describe una adición de Michael diastereoselectiva del O–etilditiocarbonato de potasio comercial sobre aductos de Baylis–Hillman, utilizando 9–BBN (9–borabiciclo[3.3.1]no nano) como ácido de Lewis. El 9–BBN protegió el grupo hidroxilo y activó al mismo tiempo el grupo carbonilo del aceptor de Michael.

Keywords: Xantatos; aductos de Baylis–Hillman; 9–BBN, ácido de Lewis.
