Reaction information

*#Reaction file
*Reaction file type CDX

A solution of 4-pentene-1-ol (4.306 g, 50 mmol) in THF (20 mL) was added to a solution of pentane washed sodium hydride (1.92 g, 48 mmol) in THF (35 mL) and the mixture stirred until effervescence ceased (3 h). Trichloroethene (4.13 mL, 6.04 g, 46 mmol) was added and the solution heated to reflux overnight. After cooling, MeOH (10 mL), H2O (25 mL) and Et2O (50 mL) were added. The layers were separated and the aqueous layer extracted with ether. The combined organic extracts were washed with brine, dried over MgSO4, filteredand concentrated to give an orange oil. The crude product was purified by column chromatography (SiO2, petrol) to give the title compound as a clear, colourless oil (5.614 g, 67%).

*Yield (%) 67
*Type of Yield Isolated Product Yield
Further information Compound 201: 5-((1,2-Dichloro-1-ethenyl)oxy)-1-pentene
