Cycloaddition of vinyl aziridines with unsaturated substrates. A novel rearrangement of an unsaturated nitro compound.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Vinylaziridine 2 undergoes reaction with electrophilic acetylenes and olefins to produce 7-membered azepine derivatives. With β-nitro-styrene however, a novel rearrangement occurs, presumably via an ene reaction to form 10, the structure of which is definitively shown by x-ray diffraction. © 1981.
