Asymmetric electrocyclic reactions

Abstract:

Pericyclic reactions are a class of transformations that comprise sigmatropic rearrangements, group transfer reactions, cycloadditions and electrocyclic reactions. Since Woodward and Hoffmann rationalized the mechanism and stereochemistry of pericyclic reactions they have become powerful synthetic tools. Whilst sigmatropic rearrangements and cycloadditions are cornerstones of contemporary synthetic methodology, many electrocyclic reactions are not fully exploited currently; there are no ge...
