    Abstract: An improved syntheses of substituted benzhydryl derivatives has been developed. This facile two-step procedure involves C-C bond formation from O-diphenylmethyltrichloroacetimidate and C-nucleophiles in the presence of TMSOTf. The C-nucleophiles include arenes, alkenes, alkene silylated C-nucleophiles and trimethylsiloxy alkenes to give a series su... Show More
