Reaction information

*#Reaction file
*Reaction file type CDX 

To a suspension of LiAlH4 (5.7 g, 150 mmol) in ether (100 mL) was added dropwise a solution of ethyl(3-phenyl-pent-4-enoate) (20.4 g, 100 mmol) in ether (50 mL) at 0 °C. The suspension was stirred for 15 h before quenching with ethyl acetate (10 mL) then 2 M HCl until the solution became clear. The organic layer was separated and the aqueous extracted with ether. The combined organic phases were washed with brine, dried over MgSO4 and concentrated. The crude product was purified by Kugelrohr distillation (120 °C, 1 mbar) to provide pure material (13.10 g, 81% yield). 

*Yield (%) 81
*Type of Yield Isolated Product Yield
