Open-Vessel Microwave-Mediated [2+2+2]-Cyclotrimerization Reactions
07 October 2009 (eFirst)
[2+2+2]-Cyclotrimerization reactions often suffer from low reaction rates and low chemoselectivity. We are reporting a solution to both problems through the use of open-vessel conditions for microwave-mediated cyclotrimerization reactions.
