Abstract

The thermal desulfination of allylsulfinic acid proceeds with a negative activation volume, solvent independence and a relatively small deuterium isotope effect which, together with the results of a previous stereochemical study, confirm a concerted retro-ene mechanism and suggest a relatively compact, early transition state.
