Barahman Movassagh and Mozhgan Navidi


Nucleophilic selenium compounds are useful for a number of functional group transformations. The aim of this chapter is to present the various aspects of the preparation and the synthetic utility of the most recently used nucleophilic selenium reagents now available to academic and industrial chemists.


Nucleophilic substitution, selenolates, selenols, selenides, stereoselectivity, vinyl selenides, selenoesters, ring opening reactions, ring closing reactions, solvent-free.
