Abstract

The first of its kind? A simple, twelve-membered C-Se heterocycle (see structure; blue C, yellow Se, black H) was obtained by treatment of secondary amines with Woollins' reagent. The ring formation proceeds through diselenoate intermediates and requires a polar solvent like dichloromethane.
