Cephalosporanic acid sulphones react with DCC to give a novel 4-spiroazetidinyl-Δ2-cephem structure with high stereoselectivity. The reaction, though general for cephem-4-carboxylic acids, is deeply affected by oxidation at sulphur; an external base was required for the 1-sulphide 3, and stereoselectivity was lost with the 1α-sulphoxide 9.
