An unprecedented elimination-driven migration: the reductive dihalobornane-camphene rearrangement

In the rearrangement of exo-2,10-dibromobornane to camphene it was demonstrated that even complex elimination processes which involve the breaking and making of several bonds can be brought about in a highly concerted fashion under variable push-pull control. Several trapping reactions, a failed radical reaction, and stereochem. studies were used to verify the mechanism. [on SciFinder (R)]
