Metal-catalyzed cycloisomerization reactions of 1,n-enynes have become conceptually and chemically attractive processes in the search for atom economy, which is a key subject of current research. However, metal-catalyzed cycloisomerization between aryl enol ether and silylalkynes has not been developed. The ruthenium hydride complex catalyzed cycloisomerization between aryl enol ether and silylalkynes is reported to give benzofurans having useful functional groups, vinyl and trimethylsilylmethyl, on the 2- and 3-positions, respectively.
