Abstract

Ketenes can be generated by treatment of carboxylic acids with l-methyl-2-chloropyridinium iodide and triethylamine and may be intermediates during macrolactonization reactions via the Mukaiyama procedure. A new procedure for the direct conversion of enoic acids to [2+2] ketene-olefin cydoadducts is described.
