Abstract

The title compounds were prepared and were found to undergo ring opening and molecular rearrangement under mild conditions and no catalysis, forming a carbon - carbon bond and closing a new chelate ring. The rearrangement product depends on whether a-protons are present. Reactants and products are characterized by crystal structures.
