Prof. Dr. A. Stephen K. Hashmi, Dipl.-Chem. Katharina Graf, Dr. Martin Ackermann and Dr. Frank Rominger Gold(I)-Catalyzed Domino Reaction of Allyl 2-en-4-ynyl Ethers to 1,3,6-Trien-4-yl Ketones ChemCatChem 5
Old is gold! The gold(I)-catalyzed reaction of allyl 2-en-4-ynyl ethers represents a new mechanistic pathway leading to 1,3,6-trien-4-yl ketones under mild reaction conditions (see scheme). Remarkable diastereoselectivity combined with perfect regioselectivity is the key feature of the reaction cascade.
