Scholarcy highlights

  • Allylic alcohols undergo transposition reactions in the presence of Re2O7 whereby the equilibrium can be dictated by trapping one isomer with a pendent electrophile
  • Terminating the process through bimolecular nucleophilic addition into the intermediate provides a versatile method for the synthesis of diverse oxygen‐containing heterocycles
  • Understanding the relative rates of the steps in the sequence leads to the design of reactions which create multiple stereocenters with good to excellent levels of control
