Regioselective vicinal functionalization of unactivated alkenes with sulfonium iodate(i) reagents under metal-free conditions.


Metal-free, molecular iodine-free direct 1,2-difunctionalization of unactivated alkenes has been reported. The sulfonium iodate(i) reagent efficiently promoted the intermolecular vicinal iodo-functionalization of a diverse range of olefins in a stereo and regioselective manner. This method enables the divergent and straightforward preparation of… (More)
