Abstract: The synthesis of the novel m-substituted S-methyl thiocinnamates 1 ± 4 is described. Cathodic reductions of S-esters 1 ± 3, carried out at constant potentials corresponding to their first voltammetric E pc , in a polar aprotic solvent, led exclusively to the racemic all-trans-configured 2,3-diaryl-5-oxocyclopentane-1-carbothioates, as shown by assignments of 1 H-NMR coupling constants.Introduction. ± The electrohydrodimerization (EHD) of alkenes, activated towards cathodic reduction by electron-withdrawing gr…
