Matthew R. Wilson and Dr. Richard E. Taylor Strained Alkenes in Natural Product Synthesis Angewandte Chemie International Edition 52
No strain, no gain: The high reactivity of strained alkenes facilitates complex synthetic transformations in a mild and atom-economical fashion. Recent developments in the synthesis and handling of distorted alkenes have led to the use of these highly reactive molecules as critical intermediates in natural product synthesis. The ability of strained alkenes to drive otherwise unfavorable reactions is demonstrated in a number of these examples.
