Blaise reaction

Blaise reaction

The Blaise reaction is an organic reaction that forms a β-ketoester from the reaction of zinc metal with a α-bromoester and a nitrile.Ref|Blaise1901 Ref|OS1955 Ref|Rao2008 The final intermediate is a metaloimine, which is hydrolyzed to give the desired β-ketoester.Ref|Cason1953

Bulky aliphatic esters tend to give higher yields. Hannick and Kishi have developed an improved procedure.Ref|Hannick1983

It has been noted Ref|Hannick1983Ref|Wang2005 that free hydroxyl groups can be tolerated in the course of this reaction, which is surprising for reactions of organometal halides.
