Cycloaddition Reactions of Cobalt-Complexed Macrocyclic Alkynes: The Transannular Pauson–Khand Reaction

Cycloaddition Reactions of Cobalt-Complexed Macrocyclic Alkynes: The Transannular Pauson–Khand Reaction
Sedef Karabiyikoglu, Craig A. Merlic, Byron A. Boon
The Pauson–Khand reaction is a powerful tool for the synthesis of cyclopentenones through the efficient [2 + 2 + 1] cycloaddition of dicobalt alkyne complexes with alkenes. While intermolecular and intramolecular variants are widely known, transannular versions of this reaction are unknown and the basis of this study. Macrocyclic enyne and dienyne complexes were readily synthesized by palladium(II)-catalyzed oxidative macrocyclizations of bis(vinyl boronate esters) or ring-closing metathesis reactions followed by complexation with dicobalt octacarbonyl. Several reaction modalities of these macrocyclic complexes were uncovered. In addition to the first successful transannular Pauson–Khand reactions, other intermolecular and transannular cycloaddition reactions included intermolecular Pauson–Khand reactions, transannular [4 + 2] cycloaddition reactions, intermolecular [2 + 2 + 2] cycloaddition reactions, and intermolecular [2 + 2 + 1 + 1] cycloaddition reactions. The structural and reaction requirements for each process are presented.
