|Intramolecular Cyclopropanation with α-Chloroboronic Esters|
An intramolecular cyclopropanation that involves cation intermediates rather than carbenes was developed. Three new C-C bonds (red) are created at a single carbon center derived from dichloromethane to give bicyclo[3.1.0]hexanes.
This work was carried out in the group of Prof. Philippe Renaud.
