Tetrameric Enolate Aldol Reaction


- Reaction is first order in aldehyde and first order in ketone enolate
- The upfield mixed tetramer peak disappears (marked with asterisks) if non-F aldehyde is used, the downfield one disappears if non-F enolate is used, confirming the assignment to a 3:1 enolate-aldolate product
- 1 eq of HMPA - reduced rate by factor of 40
