      Since research on the total synthesis of carotenoids began, the enol ether and the aldol condensations have been frequently used for the formation of carbon-carbon double bonds.
    • 2004, J. E. Carruthers, W. Carruthers, Iain Coldham, Modern Methods of Organic Synthesis, Cambridge University Press, 4th Edition, page 29,
      A solution to the use of the thermodynamic ketone enolate lies in the selective formation and reaction of silyl enol ethers.
    • 2009, Jason Eames, 8: Acid-base properties of enols and enolates, Jacob Zabicky (editor), The Chemistry of Metal Enolates, Part 1, Wiley, page 421,
      It is interesting to note that relative enol stability (pKE) plays little or no role in the relative acidity of enols for example, as in the case of 45 and 45243.
