Abstract: The zinc Schlenk equilibrium, little used since it was first described in 1966, has been promoted through the addition of methylaluminoxane (MAO) to maximize the yield of ZnR2 from deleterious RZnCl by-products. This process allows an SN2?-addition approach to the preparation of chiral ?,?-disubstituted ?-methylenepropionates with high enantioselectivity (see scheme).
