A Me3SiCl-promoted conjugate hydrocyanation of α,β-unsaturated ketones using non-toxic potassium hexacyanoferrate(II) as an eco-friendly cyanide source is described. By "one-pot" procedure, the intermediate, trimethylsilyl cyanide, does not need separation. With 1 mol% Cs2CO3 as catalyst, a variety of aromatic and aliphatic α,β-unsaturated ketones afforded the corresponding β-cyano ketones regioselectivity exclusively. Avoiding the traditional highly toxic cyanide and without separation of the reactive intermediate trimethylsilyl cyanide make this protocol more practical.

Key words: Michael addition, cyanides, α,β-unsaturated ketones, green chemistry, potassium hexacyanoferrate(II)
