Aromatic compounds (phenols), when treated with Vilsmeier Haack (V-H) reagent in the presence of transition metal ions such as Cu(II), Ni(II), Co(II), Cd(II), and Zn(II) under reflux conditions, afforded corresponding ortho-formyl derivatives in good yields. Under normal conditions the metal-ion-free V-H reactions are too sluggish and resulted in poor yields. This protocol provides highly regioselective formylation under a mild and efficient condition with simple workup.

One Response to Transition Metal Ions as Efficient Catalysts for Facile Ortho-Formylation of Phenols under Vilsmeier–Haack Conditions

  1. Dear Dr. Anthony,
    Thanks for your service to the chemical community. I am haapy to get the required article from above link. After reading the article I got one doubt. Authors did not mention about the hydration state of the metal salt. In most of the catalogs different hydrates are supplied. But being a dry reaction will it be possible to use hydrated forms of salts? Handling of anhydrous salts may be risky as they are all nitrates (explosive nature).
