Blaise ketone synthesis

Lianyungang Klinechem Co.,Ltd | Updated: Nov 30, 2018

The Blaise ketone synthesis (named after Edmond Blaise) is the chemical reaction of acid chlorides with organozinc compounds to give ketones.[1] [2]

The reaction also works with organocuprates.[3][4]

Reviews have been written.[5] [6]


Blaise-Maire reaction

The Blaise-Maire reaction is the Blaise ketone synthesis using β-hydroxy acid chlorides to give β-hydroxyketones, which are converted into α,β-unsaturated ketones using sulfuric acid.[7]
