Abstract

Tandem ring opening, elimination, and cycloaddition of donor-acceptor cyclopropanes were observed in Yb(OTf)3-catalyzed cycloaddition with nitrosoarenes. The reaction results in formation of tetrahydro-1,2-oxazine instead of the normal cycloadduct isoxazolidine via in situ nitrone formation. A similar cascade sequence was observed with cis-diazines. Mechanistic studies on this unique transformation offer an entirely new approach for reaction design with donor-acceptor cyclopropanes.
