Abstract: We succeeded in developing a base-free methodology for the NHC-catalyzed intermolecular Stetter reaction by employing CsF as a dual Lewis acid/base activating reagent, achieving the desired 1,4-dicarbonyl structural scaffold under ultrasonication reaction condition. Generally, moderate to excellent yields were obtained. Yields were especially good when highly reactive Michael acceptors were employed in conjuction with an aromatic carbinol carrying electron withrdrawing subtituents.
