Abstract

For the first time, a dual photoredox- and titanocene-catalyzed methodology for the regioselective access to α-vinyl-β-hydroxy esters towards aldehyde allylation with 4-bromobut-2-enoate is reported. The protocol is based on the Barbier-type properties of the inexpensive and available Cp2TiCl2 in catalytic amount (5 mol%). The developed mild reaction conditions gave access to a library of differently functionalized α-vinyl-β-hydroxy esters in moderate diastereoselectivity, employing the commercially available ethyl 4-bromobut-2-enoate and both aromatic and aliphatic aldehydes. The reaction was realized under visible light irradiation, in the presence of an organophotocatalyst (3DPAFIPN, 2 mol%) combined with Hantzsch's ester as the sacrificial reductant. In contrast to other Barbier-type reactions employing ethyl 4-bromobut-2-enoate, the photoredox system ensures a better regioselectivity. Moreover, the use of preformed organometallic nucleophilic species (e. g., dienolborinates), and the need of metal reductants or stoichiometric amount of transition metals in low oxidation state for Barbier-type reactions, is avoided. To support the experimental evidence, a detailed photophysical study shed light on the mechanism of the reaction.
