Cu-Catalyzed Cascade Annulation of Alkynols with 2-Azidobenzaldehydes: Access to 6H-Isochromeno[4,3-c]quinoline
Pei-Nian Liu, Xiao-Ping Zhu, Deng-Yuan Li, Xiao-Feng Mao
A copper-catalyzed cascade reaction of alkynols and 2-azidobenzaldehydes has been achieved, giving 6H-isochromeno[4,3-c]quinoline in yields of 40–81%. This reaction provides a novel, concise strategy for rapidly constructing compounds with fused N- and O-containing heterocycles. In contrast to previously reported reactions of alkynols in which the first step is intramolecular cycloisomerization, the first step in this novel reaction of alkynols is entropically unfavorable intermolecular addition. The resulting hemiacetal intermediate then undergoes intramolecular cyclization and aromatization to afford the product.
