Investigations of the tetrachlorosilane-ethanol induced self condensations of ketones

Elmorsy, S. S., Pelter, A., Smith, Keith, Hursthouse, M. B. and Ando, D. 1992. Investigations of the tetrachlorosilane-ethanol induced self condensations of ketones. Tetrahedron Letters 33 (6) , pp. 821-824. 10.1016/S0040-4039(00)77724-0

Silicon tetrachloride-ethanol induced self condensation of ketones to yield tri- or hexasubstituted benzenes, can be diverted in a variety of ways, dependent on the steric hindrance of the ketone. A number of examples of cyclic ketone condensations are given, and the surprising result from condensation of propiophenone as compared with acetophenone is presented. The SiCl4/EtOH induced reactions of ketones to give benzenoids may be diverted at the second aldol condensation or at the cyclisation stage.
