Synthesis of 1,3-Cycloalkadienes from Cycloalkenes: Unprecedented Reactivity of Oxoammonium Salts
Yoshiharu Iwabuchi describes the synthesis of 1,3-cycloalkadienes from cycloalkenes.
Cyclic 1,3-dienes or 1,3-cycloalkadienes are important chemicals that have a variety of synthetic applications in organic chemistry, but their preparation – particularly in the case of highly functionalized 1,3-cycloalkadienes – can be challenging, thus affecting the availability of these molecules as building blocks.
A convenient one-pot synthesis of 1,3-cyclo-alkadienes via a regioselective dehydrogenation of the corresponding cycloalkenes has been developed recently by the group of Professor Yoshiharu Iwabuchi from Tohoku University (Japan).
