Widening the usefulness of epoxides and aziridines in synthesis

Abstract

Epoxides and aziridines are common intermediates in synthesis. Readily accessible in enantioenriched form, they are typically used as electrophiles, taking advantage of their predictable highly regioselective ring-opening reactions. Our work in the area of α-lithiated terminal epoxides and aziridines indicates that there are many other less conventional but useful reactions of these small-ring heterocycles [1].
