Oxenoids as Homologation Partners

Longyang Dian, Ilan Marek

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Homologation reactions with oxenoids have been less studied than their carbon and nitrogen counterparts, carbenoids and nitrenoids, respectively. It has been mainly restricted to the stereoretentive oxidation of vinyl metal and cyclopropyl metal, leading to the formation of stereodefined enolates and cyclopropanols that could be subsequently used for the creation of stereogenic centers and in particular for the formation of quaternary carbon stereocenters, demonstrating their potential for the construction of complex skeletons from these simple and readily available substrates.
