Abstract

Until recently, selenium derivatives at a higher oxidation state had found rather limited use in organic synthesis. The last ten years, however, have shown that these species are valuable reagents and intermediates which allow clean and high-yielding transformations of a variety of functional groups even in very complex structures in a chemo- regio- and stereoselective manner, under rather mild reaction conditions. A comprehensive review of the synthetic utility of these compounds is presented here with particular emphasis on the stereochemical aspects of their use as reagents.
