Insertion of polar and nonpolar unsaturated molecules into carbon-rhenium bonds generated by C-H bond activation: synthesis of phthalimidine and indene derivatives.
A rhenium complex, [ReBr(CO)(3)(thf)](2), catalyzes the reaction of an aromatic aldimine with an isocyanate and an acetylene to give a phthalimidine and an indene derivative in a quantitative yield,Expand

Rhenium-Catalyzed Construction of Polycyclic Hydrocarbon Frameworks by a Unique Cyclization of 1,n-Diynes Initiated by 1,1-Difunctionalization with Carbon Nucleophiles.
A regioselective cyclization of 1,n-diynes under rhenium catalysis was developed on the basis of a rare type of 1,1-difunctionalization of terminal alkynes with carbon nucleophiles, followed byExpand
