New 1,3-dithiol-2-ylidene donor–π–acceptor chromophores with intramolecular charge-transfer properties, and related donor–π–donor molecules: synthesis, electrochemistry, X-ray crystal structures,
New donor-π-acceptor chromophores 5a-c, 7a-c, 8a-c, 13a-c and 14b-c have been synthesised: substituted 1,3-dithiole derivatives span a range of donor abilities [viz. 4,5-dimethyl >Expand
Oxidation of furans with dimethyldioxirane. Interception of malealdehyde and related aldehydes via Wittig reactions
Unsaturated aldehydes including malealdehyde, generated in acetone by oxidation of furans with dimethyldioxirane, can be trapped efficiently by phosphoranes in Wittig reactions.
