Analogies between synthetic and biosynthetic reactions in which [1,2]-alkyl shifts are combined with other events: dyotropic, Schmidt, and carbocation rearrangements. Academic Article uri icon


  • A survey of computational studies on the mechanisms of dyotropic, Schmidt, and related reactions is presented. Connections between synthetically applied versions of these processes and those predicted to occur during biosynthetic terpene-forming carbocation cascades are highlighted.
