Reactions of Diazomethane with Sulfonyl-activated Double Bonds

  • Published 2017
The cyclo-addition reaction of diazomethane with a,/3-unsaturated sulfones is described. Divinyl sulfone and phenyl vinyl sulfone give 1or 2-pyrazolines depending on the reaction conditions. cisand /rans-l,2-Bis(methylsulfonyl)ethene form pyrazolines, which on reaction with either triethylamine or excess of diazomethane lead to substituted pyrazoles. The… CONTINUE READING
