Abstract:
The reactions of electron-rich olefins with cobaloximes and cobalamins to give the corresponding Co(III)-alkylated products are presented as further evidence for the existence of Co(III)-π-complexes. The intermediacy of π-complexes in the rearrangements controlled by coenzyme B12-dependent enzymes is supported.
