Isocyanide (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 [6] 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.
