Semihollow triethynylphosphanes were synthesized and employed as ligands in the gold-catalyzed 8-exo-dig cyclization of acetylene-tethered silyl enol ethers to obtain eight-membered-ring carbocycles (see scheme). The gold–phosphane catalysts promoted either the annulation toward bicyclic structures or the cyclization of acyclic molecules to form nonfused carbocycles. Tf=Trifluoromethylsulfonyl.
