PdI2‐Catalyzed Regioselective Cyclocarbonylation of 2‐Allyl Phenols to Dihydrocoumarins.
Virtually identical reaction yields are achieved using the 6-tetradecyl analogue of the ligand, 1,3,4,7-tetramethyl-6-phenyl-2,4,8-trioxa-6-phospaadamantane.
[(S)-BINAP]PdBr2-Catalyzed Direct Synthesis of 2,3-Disubstituted Indoles via a Tandem Reaction Between Arylamines and α-Diketones.
Interestingly, unsymmetrical 1,2-diones react highly regioselectively with the bulkier substituent at the 2-position of the resulting indole.
