Abstract

It was hoped that the carbon-carbon double bond in an unsaturated diazoketone would act as a nucleophile in an intramolecular attack to give a ring closure. Experimental results indicate that the double bond did participate, but in such a manner so as to give only substituted products, rather than cyclic ones. We suggest a diazonium salt intermediate in the initial formation of these substituted products. Polymerization and oxonium formation after reactopm with a Lewis acid solvent account for the polymers formed and some of the substituted products.
