    • Abstract:
      Herein we describe a combined experimentaltheoretical study on the effects of substituents on regio and stereoselectivity in intramolecular 1,3dipolar cycloadditions of nitrones and alkenes tethered by benzimidazoles. By employing a large substituent at position R2or R3, complete selectivity was achieved for either the fused or bridged cycloadduct, respectively. In addition, these cycloadducts were formed as single diastereomers in all of the cycloadditions examined. © WileyVCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, 69451 Weinheim, Germany, 2009
