Abstract

Since the early 1960s the Pummerer reaction has evolved to become an indispensable tool for synthesis, and continues to serve as a source of inspiration for organic chemists. In recent years, many exciting advances have demonstrated the broad scope and synthetic utility of Pummerer methodology and the versatility of thionium ion intermediates.
