Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The protonation of N-vinylpyrroles by fluorosulfonic and trifluoroacetic acids occurs at the α-carbon atom of the pyrrole ring. Dimerization of the cation formed takes place in CF3CO2H. The rate of this process is much higher for the 2-phenyl derivative than for the 2-alkylvinylpyrrole derivative.
