Rearrangements of 3-aryl-substituted cyclopropenyl anions and the gas-phase acidity of 3-(4-methylphenyl)cyclopropene.


3-(4-Methylphenyl)-3-trimethylsilylcyclopropene and 3-(4-trifluoromethylphenyl)-3-trimethylsilylcyclopropene react with fluoride ion in the gas phase to afford 6-substituted 3-indenyl anions via a spontaneous rearrangement of their corresponding cyclopropenyl anions. These isomerizations led us to reinvestigate the reported gas-phase generation of 1,2,3… (More)
