Abstract

Air-stable hypervalent organobismuth(III) tetrafluoroborate (C6H11N(CH2C6H4)2BiBF4) was synthesized and characterized by spectroscopic and X-ray crystallographic techniques. The compound shows good catalytic efficiency in the allylation reaction of different aldehydes with tetraallyltin in a medium of aqueous methanol, giving the corresponding homoallylic alcohols in excellent chemoselectivity and yields.
