Abstract

A convenient synthesis for various β-iodo sulfones has been developed. The reaction involves additions of alkane- and arenesulfonyl iodides to simple and cyclic alkenes under the catalytic action of copper(II) chloride. The favored stereochemical results for cyclic alkenes have been rationalized in terms of stepwise addition of both portions of the addend from the diaxial direction. © 1980 American Chemical Society.
