Article (Published version)
MetadataShow full item record
Free radical cyclopropane ring closure was accomplished by thermal decomposition of thiohydroxamic esters of 6-phenylthio-4-hexencic acids. When the reaction was performed in the presence of acrylonitrile; an addition/cyclization/elimination process took place and the corresponding cyclopentanecarbonitriles were obtained. © 1990.
