Regioselective reduction of 5-substituted 2-alkylidene-4-oxothiazolidines by metal hydrides
MetadataShow full item record
Thiazolidine beta-enamino derivatives possessing a 5-substituted acetate substituent were chemoselectively reduced to corresponding alcohols, or new condensed 2-alkylidenethiazolidines. The method is based on the resistance of an enaminone fragment to reduction by metal hydrides.
