The reactions of the lithium enolate of 1-tetralone with reactive alkyl halides were examined in the absence and in the presence of 3 eq of various ligands for the lithium. It is shown that the rates of the reactions are enhanced greatly in the presence a tetradentate amine (1,1,4,7,10,10-hexamethyltriethylenetetramine), and the ratio of the monoalkylated product to the dialkylated product is increased under shorter reaction times.
