Our Flexible Synthesis of 1,4-Dicarbonyls Is Published in Science!


Our most recent work, a stereodivergent synthesis of 1,4-dicarbonyls using vinyl sulfoxides, has just appeared in Science!

A traceless reaction where sulfur disappears from the final products, and where the sulfoxide partner controls stereoselectivity through the chiral information on sulfur and the alkene double bond configuration.
