Expanding the Pillararene Chemistry: Synthesis and Application of a 10 + 1 Functionalized Pillar[5]arene

Márton Bojtár, András Simon, Petra Bombicz, and István Bitter Organic Letters (2017)  19 (17), 4528–4531 A novel functionality was introduced in the pillararene family by the Claisen rearrangement of monoallyl pillar[5]arene. This new key derivative can lead to the formation of a 10 + 1 functionalized derivative, a useful scaffold for further Read More …
