Discovery of the Double [3+2] Photocycloaddition

  • Jason A. Woolford
Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


As mentioned the Penkett group has performed a wide range of intramolecular palladium induced fragmentation-cyclizations on meta photocycloadducts with the aim of generating molecular complexity in a rapid, simple fashion with sights firmly set toward forming carbon–carbon bonds in natural products.
