Thermomorphic perfluoroalkylated-pyridines catalyzing aldol condensation

Aldol condensation is one of the most fundamental and important carbon-carbon bond-forming reactions wherein an enolate ion reacts with a carbonyl compound to form a beta-hydroxyaldehyde or beta-hydroxyketone which upon dehydration results in a conjugated enone. The reactions are usually … Continue reading
