Abstract

The reactions of cyclopropanes activated by electron-withdrawing groups and electron-donating groups – donor–acceptor (DA) cyclopropanes – and with alkenyl or alkylidene substituents has been an area of recent intense research activity. This Cluster contains contributions from many of the leading research groups in this area, and provides a concise introduction to the rich ring-opening, ring-expansion, dimerization, and cycloaddition chemistry of these compounds.
