Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics.

Abstract

The pyrrolo[1,2-c]thiazole generated by dehydration of dimethyl 5-methyl-1H,3H-pyrrolo[1,2-c]thiazole-6,7-dicarboxylate 2-oxide acts as a thiocarbonyl ylide in its cycloaddition to electron deficient alkenes but as an azomethine ylide with electron deficient alkynes. The analogous pyrazolo[1,5-c]thiazole, generated similarly, acts as a thiocarbonyl ylide with both types of dipolarophile. This behaviour is partially explained by Frontier MO theory.
