Treatment of 2-bromo-2,6-dicyano-2,3-dihydroselenine (6) with triethylamine in ethanol gave 2-selenabicyclo[3.1.0]hex-3-ene (7) in 77% yield. Reaction of 7 with benzyne formed benzoselenophene (11) in 35% yield. Methylation of 7 with methyl triflate produced Se-methylselenonium salt (12), which was transformed into amide derivatives (16) and (17). Compound (7) was converted into alkynylcyclopropane (13) via selenonium salt (12).
