Dr. Pavel Arsenyan group showed a new approach for the generation of selenocysteinyl electrophile by weak Lewis acids or oxidants. The elaborated protocol allows the construction of phenylindeno[1,2‐ c ]chromene moiety in 5‐ endo‐dig /6‐ endo‐dig cascade reactions. This method is published in the European Journal of Organic Chemistry (IF 3.029):
