Enantioselective Spirocyclopropanation of para-Quinone Methides Using Ammonium Ylides

Enantioselective Spirocyclopropanation of para-Quinone Methides Using Ammonium Ylides
Lukas Roiser, Mario Waser
The use of Cinchona alkaloid-based chiral ammonium ylides allows for the first highly enantioselective and broadly applicable spirocyclopropanation reactions of para-quinone methides. This strategy provides a straightforward protocol toward the chiral spiro[2.5]octa-4,7-dien-6-one skeleton, which is a frequently found structural motif in important biologically active molecules.
