A recent paper by Papov, Shao, Bagdasarian, Benton, Zou, Yang, Houk, and Nelson uncovers a vinyl cation insertion reaction that once again involves dynamic effects.1They find that vinyl triflates and cyclic vinyl triflates will react with [Ph3C]+[HCB11Cl11]–...
I have recently been interested in curved aromatic systems see my own paper on double helicenes.1 In this post, I cover four recent papers that discuss non-planar aromatic molecules.The first paper2 discusses the warped aromatic 1 built off of the scaffold...
Sarpong and Tantillo have examined the acid-catalyzed Prins/semipinacol rearrangement of hydroxylated pinenes, such as Reaction 1.1Rxn 1Interestingly, only the fenchone scaffold products, like 1, are observed and the camphor scaffold products, like 2, are not...

The role of dispersion in understanding organic chemistry, both structure and reactivity, is truly coming into prominence (see for example this blog post for a compound whose stability is the result of dispersion). This has been driven in part by new computational...
