A catalytic amount of electrochemically generated "ArS +" ("ArS+" = ArS(ArSSAr)+) initiates a cation chain reaction of dienes that involves the addition of ArSSAr associated with stereoselective intramolecular carbon-carbon bond formation, and the direct (in-cell) electrolysis of a mixture of a diene and ArSSAr with a catalytic amount of electricity also effectively initiates the reaction.
