- ... A preparative method for the synthesis of functionalized 2-arylindanes has been developed via the Lewis acid-mediated ring closure of stilbenyl methanols followed by nucleophilic transfer from trialkylsilyl reagents. The reactions gave the corresponding products in moderate to high yields and diastereoselectivity. The solvent as well as the nucleophile played an important role in determining the t ...
