Indium(I) bromide promotes the reaction of α,α-dichloroketones with aldehydes to produce (E)-α,β-unsaturated ketones, exclusively. The transformation occurs via two sequential reactions, an aldol-type coupling between the two carbonylic reagents followed by an elimination process. © 2006 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
