Preparation and Reactions of Functionalized Magnesium Carbenoids
31 December 1999 (online)
New functionalized magnesium carbenoids bearing an ester function have been prepared via an iodine-magnesium exchange reaction. These new carbenoids react with various electrophiles (60-88% yield). A substituted magnesium carbenoid has been prepared by sulfoxide-magnesium exchange.
