Abstract

The title compound exhibits a number of modes of reactivity toward nucleophiles/bases owing to the presence of several electrophilic and potentially nucleophilic sites in the molecule. We explored the reactions of 6-(chloromethyl)-6-methylfulvene with oxygen and nitrogen nucleophiles and bases as well as a carbon-based nucleophile (an enamine) and realized all possible reactivity modes predicted on the basis of electrophilic and nucleophilic positions in this compound.
