Goldenyne: O-tethered 1,6-enynes that contain a strained ring at the 3 position can cycloisomerize upon cationic gold(I) catalysis through a ring-expansion process. A two-step sequence allows the transformation of the cyclized compounds into ketomacrolactones, which are reminiscent of natural products.
