Gold(I)-Catalyzed Synthesis of Indenes and Cyclopentadienes: Access to (±)-Laurokamurene B and the Skeletons of the Cycloaurenones and Dysiherbols
Antonio M. Echavarren, Xiang Yin, Mauro Mato
The formal (3+2) cycloaddition between terminal allenes and aryl or styryl gold(I) carbenes generated by a retro-Buchner reaction of 7-substituted 1,3,5-cycloheptatrienes led to indenes and cyclopentadienes, respectively. These cycloaddition processes have been applied to the construction of the carbon skeleton of the cycloaurenones and the dysiherbols as well as to the total synthesis of (±)-laurokamurene B. The golden touch: Formal (3+2) cycloaddition between terminal allenes and gold(I) carbenes generated by a retro-Buchner reaction led to indenes and cyclopentadienes. These cycloaddition reactions were applied to the construction of the carbon skeleton of the cycloaurenones and the dysiherbols and to the total synthesis of (±)-laurokamurene B (see scheme).
