Crown Ether-Assisted Change of Regioselectivity
in the Reductive Cleavage of Allylsulfonamides
In the second case, the observed effect can be explained
by increased polarization of the 0-Na bond in the probable key disodium intermediate (5) (or in the corresponding
intimate ion pairs). It was, therefore, reasonable to expect
that the yield of nerol (3) would increase due to the additional ionization of the polarized C-Na and 0-Na cbonds in such an intermediate (or in the corresponding intimate ion pairs). This could arise by introducing into the
reaction sphere a macrocyclic polyether capable of complexing Nae ionsr6'. As expected, reduction of (2) with Na
in NH, at -70°C in the presence of dibenzo-[l8]crown-6
(DBl8C6) (molar ratio 1 : 8 :O.l) gives, with a reproducible
yield of -75%, nerol (3) containing no more than 40/0 of
isogeraniol (4).
The above result may be interpreted in terms of preferential &protonation of the free ion pairs (6) specifically
solvated by participation of the polyether. Of the two mesomeric forms (7) and (8). (7) is favored due to the better
separation of the negative charge"'.

The widely used two-step carbon chain elongation reaction in isoprenoids via alkylation of a sulfur-stabilized ally1
anion has the main disadvantage that both during the alkylation"' as well as during the subsequent reductive desulfur i ~ a t i o n [ ' .procedures

is possible. Although the regioselectivity of such alkylations ( a us. y) has been frequently studied, little attention
has been directed toward improving this step at the desulfurization stage.
We discuss here one of the possible approaches towards
solving this problem, exemplified by the reductive desulfonylation of nerylsulfonamide (2). The latter was found to
be the only (a)-prenylation product derived from the hydroxysulfonamide ( I ) (as its dilithium salt) which we have

The Dihydrocorphinol- Corrin Ring Contraction:
A Potentially Biomimetic Mode of Formation of
the Corrin Structure'..]
By Vittorio Rasetti, Kurt Hilpert, Alexander Fassler,
Andreas waltz, and Albert Eschenmoser"'
Recently we reported"] the synthesis of the octahydroporphinoid (dihydrocorphinoid) metal complexes ( l a ) and
(Ib), their thermal rearrangements to the 19-acetylcorrin
complexes (3a) and (3b). respectively (''dihydrocorphinolL21
+ corrin ring contraction"), and the deacylation of (3a) by
hydroxide ions to give the nickel(rr) nonamethylcorrinate
(4a). These transformations point to a possible mechanism
for the formation of the characteristic corrinoid (A-D)
ring connection in vitamin B,2 biosynthesis. The corphinoid structure ( I ) of the starting material for the ring contraction was inspired by the structure of "Factor III''[31;
the latter is the most advanced intermediate in corrin biosynthesis to be isolated to date. The ring contraction
(1)-+(3) is closely related, both structurally and mechanistically, to our l-methylidene-1,19-secocorrin-corrin cycloi~omerization~~~,
especially to the non-photochemical
(A- D)-cyclization of a 1-methylidene-19-formyl-l,l9-secocorrin reported in 1977[4'.s1. The earlier conditions necessary for the conversions ( l a ,b)-(3a, b) (melting at 295"
and 260", respectively) were unsatisfactory with regard to
the intended role of the reaction as a potentiallyr61biomimetic model. We now describe further properties and variants of the reaction, among which are conditions that permit the ring contraction to proceed even at room temperature.

Melting the metal-free ligand (Id) (as the crystalline trifluoroacetate, m.p.=194"C) for one minute in an evacuated tube at 215°C did not lead to ring-contraction. Instead, ring-opening occurred (evidently followed by skeletal rearrangement) to give the ligand system of (54,which
was isolated as the crystalline nickel(r1) complex. The same
