A valuable upgrade to the portfolio of cycloaddition reactions
MetadataShow full item record
Recently Antonchick and Manna described a unique annulation that knits together three acetophenones to construct cyclopropanes. The cascade is mediated by organo-copper and free radical species and amounts to the first known [1+1+1] cyclotrimerization. It works well for ketones having electron-deficient or electron-rich substituents in their aryl rings.
