1,3-Dipolar Cycloadditions of N-Benzyl Furfuryl Nitrones to Vinyl Ethers and a,b-Unsatureted Esters

Abstract: While abundant information on the reactivity of several classes of nitrones exists , hetaryl nitrones, i.e. nitrones bearing an heterocyclic ring at the carbon atom, have been the subject of very few investigations . Recent publications from our laboratory have been concerned with the use of thiazolyl nitrones 1 as a suitable substrate for both nucleophilic additions  and 1,3-dipolar cycloadditions . Our continued interest in the reactivity of hetaryl nitrones has led to investigate the reaction of the furfuryl nitrones 2 with several alkenes. In this communication we report our preliminary results on this topic.
