Unexpected Isomerization of Oxetane-Carboxylic Acids – substrate design.

Sunday, August 14th, 2022

Having established a viable model for the unexpected isomerism of oxetane carboxylic acids to lactones[cite]10.1021/acs.orglett.2c01402[/cite], and taken a look at a variation in the proton transfer catalyst needed to accomplish the transformation, I now investigate the substrate itself.
