ABSTRACT
The acid-catalyzed alkene-aldehyde condensation, known as the Prins reaction, is reviewed. Lewis acids, organic acids and supported catalysts have been reported to assist both the Prins acyclic reaction and the Prins cyclization. Acetals and oxocarbenium ions (generated from aldehydes and alcohols) have been described as reacting systems in the Prins reaction. Prins cyclizations have been used to form mainly five- and six-membered rings, albeit formation of seven to nine rings have been described. The Prins reaction (and cyclization) has been developed as a key strategic element in the total synthesis of different natural products.

    Thioimidates 1-Z undergo facile cross-coupling with Pd(0)–RZnI but are inert to Pd(0)–R2Zn. This difference is due to the lower Lewis acidity of R2Zn, as opposed to lower nucleophilicity. Various sources of RZnI (R = Me, Et) and Pd(0) were evaluated for their convenience and...

    The bromination of 3,5-diaryl-1,2-oxathiolane 2-oxides (?-sultines) has been studied in the presence of added Lewis acids. It was discovered that ?-sultines with donor substituents react with bromine with ring fission and conjugated addition of the nucleophilic reactant. Possible mechanisms for...

    The article carries out the reaction of 2-piperazinobenzaldehyde with cyanothioacetamide and cyanoacetamide. It shows that cyclization of the thioamide leads selectively to the (4aR, 5R)-isomer, whereas under analogous conditions, the amide does not cyclize at all. It emphasizes the importance...
