Reaction Scheme

Reaction start time: 08.55 06/09/12
AEW 2-1 (1.00 g, 4.60 mmol, 1 equiv.) was dissolved in MeOH (75 mL). Sodium borohydride (174 mg, 4.69 mmol, 4 hydride equiv.) was added. TLC after 2 hours showed some SM still present, after 4 hours still SM so sodium borohydride (44 mg, 1.17 mmol, 1 hydride equiv.) was added. After 30 minutes, reaction complete by TLC. Acetone (25 mL) added to the reaction mixture, stirred for 10 minutes and then concentrated under reduced pressure. Water was added to the redidue and extracted with DCM (3 × 30 mL). The extracts were washed with brine then dried (MgSO4) and concentrated under reduced pressure to give a pale brown solid (953 mg, 4.34 mmol, 94% yield. Stored at -20 °C under nitrogen.

Note: The product alcohol is not particularly stable, use very soon after preparation.
