Ruthenium-Catalyzed [2+2+2] Cycloaddition of 1,6-Enynes and Unactivated Alkynes: Access to Ring-Fused Cyclohexadienes
Laurent Giordano, Alphonse Tenaglia, Rui Liu
The [2+2+2] intermolecular carbocyclization reactions between 1,6-enynes and alkynes catalyzed by [RuCl(cod)(Cp*)] (cod=1,5-cyclooctadiene, Cp*=pentamethylcyclopentadienyl) are reported to provide bicyclohexa-1,3-dienes. The presented reaction conditions are compatible with internal and terminal alkynes and the chemo- and regioselectivity issues are controlled by the presence of substituents at the propargyl carbon center of the alkyne(s) partner(s). Creating complexity simply: The [2+2+2] intermolecular carbocyclization reactions between 1,6-enynes and alkynes catalyzed by [RuCl(cod)(Cp*)] (cod=1,5-cyclooctadiene, Cp*=pentamethylcyclopentadienyl) are reported to provide bicyclohexa-1,3-dienes (see scheme). Chemo- and regioselectivity are controlled by the presence of substituents at the propargyl carbon center of the alkyne(s) partner(s).
