Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


(Chemical Equation Presented) From A to Z: Allylzirconocenes have been easily prepared in a one-pot procedure through a tandem allylic C-H activation-β-elimination reaction from unsaturated fatty alcohol and ether starting materials (see scheme). The reaction proceeds rapidly under mild condition and is insensitive to the length of the carbon tether between the double bond and the alcohol moiety.
