      New way?  Bookmark   

I've ipotized a new way for making A:

According to Carey Sundberg, 4th ed. Plenum Press, page 196 4.3:

The nucleophile that are used for synthetic purposes include water, alcohols, carboxylate ions, hydroperoxides, amines, and nitriles

So I've thinked:

If I use Hg2+ salt and ammonia soln. or RNH2, I could make A directly from allylbenzene.

A possible pathway is described in the Hg_new.gif on

What do you think about this?

I'll search for refs.

good idea- if you'd been the first one.  besides there's way to much Hg waste.  try photoamination.
