Synthesis and Diels-Alder reactions of allylidenecyclopropane [4]

F. Zutterman, A. Krief

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Allylidenecyclopropane, readily available from 1-lithio-1-(phenylthio)cyclopropane, reacts with a large variety of electrophilic olefins and produces functionalized spirooctenes. The reactions are, in most cases, highly regioselective but lead mainly to the unexpected regioisomers.
