ChemInform Abstract: Nucleophilic Heterocyclic Carbene Catalyzed Annulation of Enals to Chalcones in Methanol: A Stereoselective Synthesis of Highly Functionalized Cyclopentanes
Homoenolates generated from enals by nucleophilic heterocyclic carbene (NHC) catalysis undergo annulation with chalcones in methanol to afford methyl beta-hydroxycyclopentanecarboxylates, stereoselectively. Construction of four contiguous stereocenters in a stereoselective manner is noteworthy.
