Capture of Unsymmetrical 2-Norbornyl Cations

  • Herbert C. Brown


The direct tests with appropriate substituents for charge delocalization from the 2-1 to the 1-2 and 6-3,4 positions in solvolytic reactions of 2-norbornyl derivatives all failed to confirm such charge delocalization (Chapter 11). It was then suggested that “there are good reasons to expect carbon bridging to lag behind C-X ionization at the transition state.”5
