The hexadehydro-diels-alder reaction: A new chapter in aryne chemistry

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Arynes are now accessible through the [4+2] Diels-Alder cycloaddition of triynes, a process that captures all atoms of the starting material in the aryne product. The atom economy and reagent-free conditions provide a new dimension to aryne chemistry and should enable exciting developments in the study and application of arynes in synthesis. © 2014 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
