Abstract

The outcome of oxidative ring expansion/cyclisation of cyclopropanes with a mixed Fe(III)/Cu(II) system was found to be dependent on the mode of cyclisation. When 6-exo cyclisation was attempted unusual products resulting from oxidation of ring opened primary radicals were obtained. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science Ltd.
