Reaction mechanisms

Part (ii) Pericyclic reactions

Author affiliations


This report surveys the 2009 literature on mechanisms of pericyclic reactions. Again, mechanistic studies of cycloadditions dominate, especially those of relevance to organic synthesis. Several electrocyclizations used in the synthesis of complex polycycles were also examined in detail, as were a number of sigmatropic shifts involving aza-polyenes.
