35_18/1996The cover picture shows the palladium-catalyzed cyclization cascade of an iodotriene in the presence of CO in which “living” organopalladium species are formed as intermediates. Remarkably, this reaction succeeds with terminal alkenes that usually undergo β-dehydropalladation in the Heck reaction. E. Negishi et al. report more about this first cascade-type acylpalladation yielding polycycles with an angular mode of fusion on p. 2125 ff. In the reaction shown seven C-C bonds are formed in one step.
