Carbocycles from donor–acceptor cyclopropanes

Author affiliations


This review summarizes research directed towards the formation of carbocyclic adducts from donor–acceptor cyclopropanes. The focus of the review is on annulation and cycloaddition reactions (both inter- and intramolecularly) mediated by Lewis or protic acid, bases, or thermal conditions. Rearrangements resulting in carbocycles and those reactions mediated by transition metal catalysis have been excluded.
