6-Vinylfulvenes constitute a class of fulvenes that are difficult to access due to the lack of a general method for their synthesis. In particular, the unsubstituted parent system has been very difficult to obtain by existing methods. In this communication we describe a convenient 3-step protocol for the synthesis of the title compound by way of sulfide oxidation and subsequent sulfoxide elimination.
