Expanding the scope of Lewis acid catalysis in water: Remarkable ligand acceleration of aqueous ytterbium triflate catalyzed Michael addition reactions
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
Significant rate acceleration of metal-catalyzed Michael addition reactions in water was observed upon addition of small, dibasic ligands. Ytterbium triflate and TMEDA was the most effective combination leading to a nearly 20-fold faster reaction than in the absence of ligand.
