Synthetic applications of vinyl cyclopropane opening

Author affiliations

Abstract

Vinyl cyclopropanes are amongst the most useful building blocks in organic synthesis. Their easy opening and capacity to generate dipoles have been exploited for the synthesis of cyclopentanes with good yields and sometimes excellent stereoselectivities. In this review we give an overview of their applications, focusing on the present century.
