[3+2] Cycloaddition of an Azomethyne Ylide and Vinyl Sulfonyl Fluorides ― an Approach to Pyrrolidine-3-sulfonyl Fluorides
Eur. J. Org. Chem. 2018, (22), 2870-2876
[3+2] Cycloaddition reactions of vinyl sulfonyl fluorides with an in‐situ generated nonstabilized azomethine ylide is described for the first time. The resulting pyrrolidine‐3‐sulfonyl fluorides were obtained in 50–83 % yield on a scale of up to 25 g. Their utility as reagents for sulfur(VI)–fluoride exchange (SuFEx) and some other transformations was also demonstrated.
