[3 + 2] Methylenecyclopentane annulations of unactivated and electron-rich olefins with 2-(phenylsulfonyl)-1-methylenecyclopropanes Academic Article uri icon


  • : The thiyl radical catalyzed reaction of 1 with unactivated and electron-rich olefins affords methylene-cyclopentanes regiospecifically. Using irradiation in the presence of dibutyl disulfide, these reactions can be achieved using equimolar amounts of olefins. © 1990, American Chemical Society. All rights reserved.
