Abstract

Flash vacuum pyrolysis of sulphonyl- and sulphinyl-stabilised phosphorus ylides results in loss of either phosphine or phosphine oxide to generate thio-, sulphinyl- and sulphonyl-carbenes which undergo a variety of rearrangement and insertion processes to give stable products. The first case of phosphine extrusion from a beta-oxo ylide is reported, giving access to benzotriazolyl acetyl carbene which rearranges to an acetyl benzotriazine and 2-cyanoacetophenone.
