Abstract

original image

It′s hip to be square: The search for methods for the enantioselective construction of carbocycles continues to fuel new discoveries. Now, the treatment of mixtures of sulfonylallenamides and styrenes with gold(I)-phosphoramidite complexes results in the formation of cyclobutene carbon frameworks in high yield and optical purity.
