  • Truce–Smiles rearrangement of substituted phenyl ethers 

    Kosowan, Joel R.; W’Giorgis, Zemane; Grewal, Ravneet; Wood, Tabitha E. (The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-05-26)
    The requirement of aryl ring activation by strong-electron withdrawing substituents in substrates for the intramolecular nucleophilic aromatic substitution reaction known as the Truce–Smiles rearrangement was examined. ...
  • Effect of the tether length upon Truce‐Smiles rearrangement reactions 

    Fuss, David; Wu, Yu Qi; Grossi, Michael R.; Hollett, Joshua W.; Wood, Tabitha E. (John Wiley & Sons, Ltd., 2017-07-07)
    This report examines the effect of substrate design upon the Truce‐Smiles rearrangement, an intramolecular nucleophilic aromatic substitution reaction. The length of the molecular spacer that tethers the carbanion nucleophile ...
  • The Truce–Smiles rearrangement and related reactions: a review 

    Henderson, Anna R. P.; Kosowan, Joel R.; Wood, Tabitha E. (NRC Research Press, 2017-01-16)
    The Truce–Smiles rearrangement is an X → C aryl migration reaction that is achieved by an intramolecular nucleophilic aromatic substitution pathway. The reaction exhibits a wide substrate scope with respect to a migrating ...
