Annulation Strategies Based on Anion-Accelerated Vinylcyclopropane and Vinylcyclobutane Rearrangements
The first anion-accelerated vinylcyclopropane rearrangement was reported by our laboratory and in subsequent studies we have applied this chemistry in highly stereoselective [4+1] annulation methods for the synthesis of cyclopentenes. In related work, we have also developed [3+3] and [4+2] annulation routes to cyclohexenols based on oxyanion-accelerated vinylcyclobutane rearrangements.
