Abstract

Ligand domin(o)ated: In contrast to the straightforward deprotonation of benzothiazole using Grignard reagents, treatment of benzothiazole with 1 leads to a novel type of activation. The initial magnesiation initiates an unstoppable domino reaction of CC coupling, ring opening, nucleophilic addition, and deprotonation to give 2. THF=tetrahydrofuran.
