Decarboxylative 1,2-rearrangement of cyclic carbonates promoted by Lewis acid

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

1 Citation (Scopus)


A Lewis acid-mediated decarboxylative 1,2-rearrangement reaction of cyclic carbonates was developed. The selectivity of the migration in the decarboxylative 1,2-rearrangement of cyclic carbonates was opposite to that of the corresponding 1,2-diols under the same reaction conditions. This contrasting selectivity of the migration was confirmed in a variety of substrates.
