Chlorothiolation of terminal alkynes with sulfenyl chlorides yields anti-adducts without transition-metal catalysts. In sharp contrast, transition-metal-catalyzed chlorothiolation has not been developed to date, possibly because organosulfur compounds can poison catalyst. Herein, the regio- and stereoselective palladium-catalyzed chlorothiolation of(More)
The radical addition of the Cl-S σ-bond in sulfenyl chlorides to various C-C triple bonds has been achieved with excellent regio- and stereoselectivity in the presence of a catalytic amount of a common iron salt. The reaction is compatible with a variety of functional groups and can be scaled up to the gram-scale with no loss in yield. As well as terminal(More)
[reaction: see text] Reaction of 2,2'-dihalobiphenyl with butyllithium followed by the addition of chromium(III) chloride and alkynes afforded the corresponding phenanthrene derivatives via formal [4 + 2] cycloaddition. A variety of alkynes could be used for this reaction, such as alkyl, aryl, silyl, and alkoxycarbonyl alkynes. Repetitive process of the(More)
Multi-substituted pentacenes, such as 1,2,3,4,6,8,9,10,11,13-decasubstituted pentacenes (Type I), 1,2,3,4,6,13-hexasubstituted pentacenes (Type II), 1,2,3,4-tetrasubstituted pentacenes (Type III), and 2,3-disubstituted pentacenes (Type IV), 1,2,3,4,6,11-hexasubstituted naphthacenes (Type V), 1,2,3,4-tetrasubstituted naphthacenes (Type VI), and(More)
Reactions of zirconacyclopentadienes with diethyl ketomalonate gave alpha-pyrans in excellent yields in the presence of BiCl3. In the absence of BiCl3, zirconacyclopentadienes did not react with diethyl ketomalonate. Tetraphenylzirconacyclopentadiene reacted with diethyl ketomalonate in the presence of BiCl3 to give a ring-opening product, dienolic ether,(More)
Planar chirality: Ring-closing metathesis of 1,2-diallylmetallocenes afforded the corresponding 4,7-dihydroindenyl species in high yields. The metallocenes are planar chiral with two different allylic substituents, and kinetic resolution of the racemic 1,2-diallylmetallocene derivatives was realized by molybdenum-catalyzed asymmetric ring-closing metathesis(More)
Palladium-catalyzed reactions of various 2-bromo-3-exo-methylenecycloalkenes with a stabilized nucleophile were examined. When the carbocycles were nine-membered or larger, the corresponding endocyclic allenes were isolated in excellent yields. In a reaction of the eight-membered cyclic substrate, initial formation of a cycloocta-1,2-diene derivative was(More)
A novel and versatile synthetic method for picene derivatives is developed using the Pd-catalyzed intramolecular double cyclization of the corresponding 2,3-bis[(1Z)-2-phenylethenyl]-1,4-dichlorobenzenes, which are readily prepared by Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling reactions of polyhalobenzenes with (Z)-arylethenylboronates. The physical properties of the(More)
Titanacyclopentadienes, prepared from [Cp2TiBu2] and either two equivalents of an alkyne or a diyne, were treated with PMe3 (3 equiv) at 50 °C for 3 h and then with azobenzene at room temperature for 12 h to give 4,5,6-trisubstituted indene derivatives with the loss of one substituent in good yields. This reaction contrasts sharply with our previously(More)
A highly regio- and stereoselective silylborylation of an alkynylboronate is disclosed. PhMe2Si-B(pin) undergoes a Pd(OAc)2/(t)OctNC-catalyzed syn-addition to the alkynylboronate to yield 1-phenyl-1-silyl-2,2-diborylethene with high regioselectivity. The product 1-phenyl-1-silyl-2,2-diborylethene is then chemoselectively arylated by Suzuki-Miyaura coupling(More)
