I chuckled a bit when I saw this graphical abstract. I like bromobenzene; I have written about it before.
Disclaimer: I haven’t even read the paper, this just caught my eye while aimlessly browsing ACS Mobile, one of my favorite apps.
Anyway, I figured I’d turn this into a final exam question (pixelation and colors are on me):
Org. Lett. 2013, Article ASAP (DOI: 10.1021/ol400650v)
- Name reagents and conditions A
- Name reagents and conditions B
- WTF is IDCP?
- Draw structure X with emphasis om the correct stereochemistry and…
- …provide a convincing rationale for the observed formation of a single diastereomer
Hint: Look at the final structure. Good luck!
