Internal-return rearrangement in solvolysis of cyclopropylcarbinyl derivatives


The unusual reactivities of cyclopropylcarbinyl derivatives in solvolytic reactions have led to a continuing interest in the details of the reaction mechanism and the structures of the intermediates (1). Conductimetric (2) and titrimetric (3) methods for the rate determinations have increased the precision of the measured rate constants but reliance on kinetic data alone has led to some interpretative oversights.
