Diels-Alder reactions of 2-Alkenylboranes and cis-1-alkenylboranes. Anomalous selectivity that allows a choice of regiochemistry Academic Article uri icon


  • 2-Alkenyl- and cis-1-alkenylboranes are highly reactive Diels-Alder dienophiles which display unusual selectivity patters. By taking advantage of a reversal of regiochemistry of reaction with alkenyldihalo- versus alkenyldialkylboranes, any desired regioisomeric product may be favored, usually with very high selectivity. © 1993.
