The ready availability of the starting materials and the extensive possibilities for functionalizing the products are the distinguishing features of the title reaction 1 2, which is shown exemplarily in equation (a). Further advantages are good yields, high diastereoselectivity, and the simple purification of the carbocyclic products.
