(3) attacks to re-face and si-face of 8E and 8Z and produces intermediate nitrilium ion 9R and 9S having one more stereocenter.
Some specialist predators, such as nudibranchs, are capable of sequestering isocyanide
compounds from their sponge diets (Burgoyne et al., 1993; Cimino and Sodano, 1994).
In the last few years many companies--particularly in the USA, Switzerland, and France--are very active in the MCR field, but only very few academic groups like those of Bossio, Curran, and Schreiber  have recently shown activity, although the chemistry of the isocyanide
MCRs is one of the few areas of chemistry where still much progress can be made.

Related (disilene)palladium complexes with isocyanide
ligands 75a, 75b, and 76 are synthesized by the reactions of 70b and 74 with the corresponding isocyanide

The chemistry of isocyanides
[1-9] began in 1859 when Lieke  formed allyl isocyanide
from allyl iodide and silver cyanide.
Measuring the effect of ultraviolet light on methyl isothiocyanate's breakdown in the troposphere, where many sprayed particles end up, the chemists saw the pesticicle degrade into methyl isocyanide
and atomic sulfur.
