2-Benzothiazolyl Propargyl Sulfides: Versatile Precursors for Enantiopure Allenes, E-α,β-Unsaturated Ketones and Z-Sulfonylalkenes

Dagmar C. Kapeller & Philip J. Kocienski
A novel, stereospecific route to allenes is described. The approach proceeds via a retro-ene reaction, initiated by lithium aluminium hydride mediated cleavage of benzothiazole from the respective (chiral) 2-benzothiazolyl propargyl sulfone precursors. As such, allenes in up to 92% yield are formed under evolution of sulfur dioxide at ambient temperature. Furthermore, a new and mild way to generate E-α,β-unsaturated ketones has been discovered. These substrates are formed in around 50% yield by treating 2-benzothiazolyl propargyl...
