- [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: The use of TADDOL-based phosphoramidite ligands on rhodium allows for the incorporation of terminal alkynes in the [2+2+2] cycloaddition with alkenyl isocyanates. Terminal aliphatic alkynes provide bicyclic lactams, while the use of aryl alkynes provides complementary access to vinylogous amides. Product selectivity seems to be governed by a combination of electronics and sterics, with smaller and/or more electron-deficient substituents favoring lactam formation. The use of homologous alkenyl isocyanates leads to an expedient asymmetric total synthesis of the alkaloid lasubine II.
- [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: The enantioselective [2 + 2 + 2] cycloaddition of 1,6-diynes with alpha-methylene lactones and cyclic ketones gave various chiral spirocyclic compounds. The reaction proceeded with high enantioselectivity when the rhodium-xylylBINAP complex was used as a chiral catalyst. Not only exo-methylene cyclic compounds but also exo-methylene acyclic compounds could be used as coupling partners for diynes. The present protocol provides access to a new chiral library possessing a quaternary carbon center, including a spirocyclic system.
- [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: From dipole to diazole! A direct and regioselective route to functionalized pyrazole boronic esters is developed that employs the cycloaddition of alkynylboronates with sydnones. Functionalization of these products by Suzuki coupling and N‐deprotection processes highlight the potential synthetic utility of these species.
