Synthesis of α-substituted vinylsulfonium salts and their application as annulation reagents in the formation of epoxide- and cyclopropane-fused heterocycles.


The discovery of new methods for the synthesis of classes of potentially bioactive molecules remains an important goal for synthetic chemists. Vinylsulfonium salts have been used for the synthesis of a wide variety of small heterocyclic motifs; however, further developments to this important class of reagents has been focused on reaction with new substrates… (More)
