    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Aryl and heteroaryl sulfoxides undergo ortho allylation upon treatment with Tf 2O and allylsilanes. The method complements the use of sulfoxides to direct ortho-metalation and reaction with electrophiles as it allows allylic carbon nucleophiles to be added ortho to the directing group in a metal-free process. The versatile sulfide adducts can be selectively manipulated using various methods including Kumada-Corriu cross-coupling of the organosulfanyl group. © 2011 American Chemical Society.
