Abstract

α-(1-adamantyl)-β-diketones are now accessible by the alkylation of Co(II) complexes of β-diketones with 1-bromoadamantane. The intermediacy of adamantyl cation is proposed. Co(II), Co(III) and Zn(II) complexes of pentane-2,4-dione react with alkyl halides precursors of stabilized carbenium ions, to give 3-alkylpentane-2,4-diones. © 1985.
