Conference paper


Allyl aryl ethers can be selectively and catalytically cleaved to the corresponding phenols by electrogenerated Ni°-bipyridine species. The reaction constitutes a new method of alcohol deprotection. The intramolecular allyl transfer of allyl aryl ethers possessing a carbonyl function takes place regioselectively.
