Differently substituted cyclopropylcarbinols underwent ring cleavage with easily accessible cyanuric chloride-N,N-dimethylformamide adduct to produce homoallylic chlorides or dienes depending on the nature and location of the substituents. A mechanistic explanation of the aforesaid observations has been provided. A promising antioxidant compound was prepared following this protocol and studied against Fenton's reagent. This methodology was utilized to construct hitherto unreported vinylcyclopropane frameworks bearing homoallylic chloride and diene moieties. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. Source
