Publication in Chem. Eur. J.

Congratulations to Pierre, Arthur and Mariia for their publication in Chem. Eur. J. (Chem. Eur. J. 2023, DOI: 10.1002/chem.202301311). This work describes a diastereoselective organocatalyzed domino Vinylogous sulfa-Michael-Aldol-Cyclocondensation reaction using alkylidene Meldrum’s acids as dienes highlighting two vinylogous steps, an unprecedented sulfa-1,6-conjugate addition and a diastereoselective aldol reaction triggering a formal (4+2) cycloaddition. This works was done in partnership with Pr Giang Vo-Thanh from ICMMO (University Paris-Saclay).
