Stereoselective Formation of Alkenyl Halides via Magnesium Halide Promoted Ring Opening of Bis-Activated Cyclopropenes

Yi Wang, Hon Wai Lam

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

In the presence of stoichiometric magnesium halides, a range of bis-activated cyclopropenes undergo highly stereoselective ring-opening reactions to produce multi substituted alkenyl halides. More highly functionalized compounds may be obtained by trapping of the magnesium enolate intermediates in situ.
