sodium methyl carbonate, synthesis of symmetrical ketones, unsymmetrical ketones, Grignard reagents, organolithium, C1 synthon, alkyl metal carbonates, carboxylic acids, benzophenones
Reported is the synthesis of carboxylic acids, symmetrical ketones, and unsymmetrical ketones with selectivity achieved by exploiting the differential reactivity of sodium methyl carbonate with Grignard and organolithium reagents.
