Abstract

Syntheses and ring opening reactions of vicinally donor-acceptor-substituted cyclopropanes are treated in this review. Special attention is directed to methyl 2-siloxy cyclopropanecarboxylates which display an particularly rich and versatile chemistry leading to synthesis of polyfunctional compounds, certain carbocycles, and heterocyclic systems. Other classes of donor-acceptor-substituted cyclopropanes are also regarded emphasizing new developments. Although preparative aspects are strongly accentuated, interesting mechanistic features, characteristic for this type of three-membered rings, will also be discussed.
