J Org Chem. 2006 Feb 3;71(3):911-4.The isomerization reaction of 5-vinyl-2-norbornene (VNB) to 5-ethylidene-2-norbornene (ENB) has been performed using a catalytic system consisting of an alkali metal hydride and an amine. Among various amines tested, only aliphatic 1,2-diamines exhibited the activity for the isomerization. The isomerization was also affected by the alkali metal hydride employed. The activity of the alkali metal hyd ... Read More
