J Org Chem. 2010 May 21;75(10):3477-80. doi: 10.1021/jo100349h.The photochemistry of 6,6'-dibromo-BINOL (BINOL = 2,2'-dihydroxy-1,1'-binaphthyl) under mild basic conditions and its methyl and triisopropylsilyl ethers has been investigated in neat and aqueous acetonitrile through product distribution analysis and laser flash photolysis. Arylation and alkylation have been successfully achieved in the presence of allyltrimethylsilane, ethyl vinyl ether, pyrrole, pyridine, thiophene, benzene, and indole. Read More
