This Review traces the discovery of the Wittig-Still rearrangement and its applications in organic synthesis. Its relationship to Wittig rearrangements is discussed along with detailed analysis of E/Z- and diastereoselectivity. Modifications of the products arising from the Wittig-Still rearrangement are reviewed in the context of increased complexity in(More)
Compared with the widespread use of carbonylative Pd-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions, similar reactions involving isocyanide insertion are almost virgin territory. We investigated the intramolecular imidoylative cross-coupling of N-(2-bromoaryl)amidines, leading to 4-aminoquinazolines. After thorough optimization of the reaction with respect to palladium(More)
A second-generation approach to the synthesis of hydromorphone by oxidative dearomatization/Diels-Alder cycloaddition was investigated. Detailed analysis of the stereochemical outcome of the [4 + 2] cycloaddition was performed first on a truncated model system as well as on the material leading to ent-hydromorphone. The stereochemical assignments were made(More)
