A novel palladium-catalyzed reaction involving an unusual nucleophilic attack on a palladium enolate was developed using a spiro-bis(isoxazoline) (SPRIX) ligand. Treatment of alkynyl cyclohexadienone substrates with a Pd/SPRIX catalyst in acetic acid under an oxygen atmosphere furnished diacetoxylated benzofuranone derivatives in good yields. This cyclative diacetoxylation proceeded enantioselectively in the presence of an optically pure SPRIX ligand.
