Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper reports original results concerning the Se/Li exchange reaction involving the cleavage of the C-Se bond of aryl alkyl selenides by butyllithiums. This reaction is one of the methods available to produce functionalized organolithium compounds.
