Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Terminal and disubstituted olefins are formed on reaction of methyl-or phenylselenolate with vic-dibromides, β-halogenoselenides, β-iodo-and β-bromo-alkylchlorides and vic-dichlorides. The reaction occurs stereoselectively by formal anti elimination in the three first cases and by formal syn elimination in the last one.
