Abstract

Reaction of lithium hexamethyldisilazide (LHMDS) with (η6-arene)Cr(CO)3 complexes bearing a β-alaninenitrile moiety gives tetrahydroisoquinoline derivatives as the major products after oxidation of the reaction intermediate, whereas protonation of the reaction intermediates produces hexahydroisoquinoline as the major products.
