1,3-Dithienium and 1,3-Dithiolenium Salts. IX. Reactions of 1,3-Dithiane-2-ylium Tetrafluoroborates with C-Nucleophiles1,3-Dithian-2-ylium tetrafluoroborates (1), which can be easily obtained by variable methods, react in good to excellent yields with variable C-nucleophiles to new geminal disubstituted 1,3-dithianes. The latter compounds are potential precursors of interesting synthetic building blocks. Reactions are described with 2-lithio-1,3-dithianes 2, sodium cyanide 4, sodium salts of the nitro alkanes 7 and CH-acids of the type of the 1,3-dicarbonyl compounds 9. The reduction of 3-oxo-2-(2-phenyl-1,3-dithian-2-yl)-ethoxybutanoat-following a diastereoselective pathway - leads to the Cram product 11. Further presented is the crystal structure of 2-phenyl-1,3-dithiane-2-ylium tetrafluoroborate (1b).
