Let′s rearrange! Rh(PPh3)2(CO)Cl/AgBF4 has been found to be an efficient catalytic system in the rearrangement of azabicyclo[4.1.0]heptenes having an aryl and a cyclopropyl group in the 1- and 6-position, respectively. This has led to the development of an efficient and simple method for the synthesis of arylhexahydroisoquinolines.
