Description

Applications
The catalytic system of disubstituted aromatics was optimized for the 2-methylanisole reduction by a proper choice of the amine/Rh ratio which should be high enough to stabilize very small colloidal rhodium particles and low enough to avoid deactivation. The total synthesis of (±)-heliannuol D and its epimer has been completed in 9 steps and 12% overall yield from 2-methylanisole. The thermal activation of 2-methylanisole (60°C) by the Ir (III) complex TpMe2Ir (C6H5) 2 (N2)(1; TpMe2= hydrotris (3, 5-dimethylpyrazolyl) borate) yielded a mixture of hydride complexes. The total synthesis of the phenolic sesquiterpene mutisianthol has been accomplished in 12 steps from the readily available 2-methylanisole. The catalytic system was optimized for the 2-methylanisole reduction by a proper choice of the amine/Rh ratio which should be high enough to stabilize very small colloidal rhodium particles and low enough to avoid deactivation.

Solubility
Insoluble in water.

Notes
Store in cool place. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Store away from strong oxidizing agents.
