Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The axial C-Se bond of seleno- and mixed selenoacetals derived from 4-tert-butyl cyclohexanones exhibit a high tendency to be cleaved by n-butyllithium. The resulting 1-seleno-4-tert-butyl cyclohexyllithiums are selectively protonated or selenylated via axial attack.
