The use of phase transfer catalysis (PTC) for the purpose of carrying out ionic reactions has become commonplace in recent years.2 Although the techniques of PTC have been concerned for the most part with the transfer of anionic reagents between two immiscible phases for subsequent nucleophilic reactions, the concept is believed to be much more general.3 Recently, for instance, a few examples describing extension of the process to cationic (electrophilic) reagents have been reported.4,5
