Chemistry and Pharmacology
An account of the most commonly used reagents for the introduction of the benzeneselenyl (phenyl seleno) group is given. The review focuses on the various methods of its introduction as auxiliary, modifying or protective entity, and its subsequent removal, thereby often promoting other reactions as cyclizations or double bond formation. Less emphasis is laid on reactions of the phenylselenenylated intermediates with the PhSe-group left intact utilizing its stabilizing properties on charged intermediates, on reagents with a modified phenyl group, e.g. chiral derivatives, or on reactions not involving intermediate C—Se-bond formation.
