alpha -Nitro ketones. 7. Synthesis of conjugated nitrocyclohexenes.

Redn. of 2-nitrocyclohexanones to 2-nitrocyclohexanols with NaBH4 followed by treatment with NaH and subsequent acid work-up gave conjugated nitrocyclohexenes regioselectively. E.g., nitrocyclohexanone I underwent redn. by NaBH4 at room temp. for 24 h to give 80% II, which underwent dehydration by N...
