I'm confused about a question involving sulphur ylides which I have attached below along with my attempt. I reacted the enone with the soft ylide to form the cyclopropyl ring but now I need to remove the bromine and hydrogen from the compound.
I was wondering whether you could use the ylide to deprotonate the alcohol on the left of the molecule, and then attack the carbon and displace the bromine from the compound, which suggests a compound for G Ive attached this below as well) with the right chemical formula? I'm not sure whether this ylide would be basic enough to do this though... I know the pKa of phenol is about 10 and so the pKa of the alcohol in question is also about 10 but I don't know about the ylide.
Any help will be greatly appreciated!
