Abstract

DABCO-catalyzed reaction of 3-methoxy-2-nitrobenzaldehyde with methyl vinyl ketone (MVK) affords a mixture of products, comprising the 'normal' Baylis-Hillman adduct, the MVK dimer and a pair of diastereomeric bis-(MVK)Baylis-Hillman adducts. 1H NMR spectroscopy-based kinetic studies have provided clear insights into the competing pathways and product distribution in this complex reaction.
