NbCl5-catalyzed [2 + 2 + 2] cycloaddition of nitriles with alkynes was used to synthesize pyrimidine derivatives. In this reaction, the use of individual Lewis acids, namely NbCl5 and FeCl3, is a key strategy for achieving the reaction using a catalytic amount of NbCl5. The roles of the two Lewis acids were investigated using FT-IR spectroscopy. The results… (More)
A NbCl5, Zn, and PCy3 catalytic system that generated low-valent Nb species is used for the synthesis of bicyclic cyclohexadienes from diynes and simple alkenes. A phosphine ligand is important for stabilizing low-valent Nb in the cycloaddition. The bicyclic cyclohexadiene skeleton is important in transition-metal-catalyzed intramolecular cycloadditions.
