Aza-Piancatelli rearrangement initiated by ring opening of donor-acceptor cyclopropanes.

Abstract

The development of a new platform to initiate the cascade rearrangement of furans for the formation of functionalized cyclopentenone building blocks is reported. This methodology allows the creation of congested vicinal stereogenic centers with high diastereoselectivity through a 4π-electrocyclization process.
