Positive thinking: A cationic rhodium(I)/H8-binap complex catalyzes the chemo-, regio-, and stereoselective completely intermolecular [2+2+2] cross-trimerization of two aryl ethynyl ethers with both electron-deficient and electron-rich carbonyl compounds (see scheme; cod=1,5-cyclooctadiene). This reaction proceeded at room temperature to give aryloxy-substituted dienyl esters in good yields.
