Mechanism of stereoselective synthesis of push-pull (2)-4-oxothiazolidine derivatives containing an exocyclic double bond. A MNDO-PM3 Study
Article (Published version)
MetadataShow full item record
Calculations using the MNDO-PM3 method were performed to elucidate the mechanism of stereoselective base-catalyzed reaction affording exclusively (2)-2-alkylidene-4-oxothiazolidine push-pull derivatives from the corresponding a-mercapto esters and activated beta-oxonitriles in ethanol as a solvent.
