Remarkable Effect of Supporting Electrolyte on the Electroreductive Cyclization of Cyclic Enones
The stereoselectivity of electroreductive cyclization of butenolide 1 changes significantly depending upon the choice of supporting electrolyte. Metal coordination to the anionic intermediate of electroreductive cyclization is postulated.
