A monoradical vinylcyclopropane cyclization-fragmentation route to eight-membered rings was investigated. 6-Exo-trig cyclization was preferred over the alternative 7-endo-trig cyclization, due to entropic factors and the position of a radical stabilizing electron withdrawing group. Changing position of the electron withdrawing group was not enough to entice 7-endo-trig cyclization.
