The Pd-catalyzed cross-coupling reaction of 2-bromo-1,3-dienes derived from alkyl aldehydes, especially with Cl2Pd(DPEphos) as a catalyst, proceeds with clean stereoinversion of the Br-bearing C=C bond to produce in high yields and in high stereoselectivity (>/=97-98%) conjugated Z,E dienes of potentially high utility in the synthesis of complex natural(More)
[reaction: see text] The Pd-catalyzed alkynylation of various alkenyl halides and triflates with alkynylzincs proceeds well even with alkynyl derivatives containing electron-withdrawing groups. The reaction appears to be highly general. Noteworthy is that the corresponding Sonogashira reactions under various reported conditions are significantly less(More)
One-pot conversion of alkynes to regio- and stereodefined alkenylmetals containing Al and Zr via hydrometalation or carbometalation followed by their Pd-catalyzed cross-coupling with (E)-ICH=CHBr or (E)-ICH=CHCl proceeds cleanly and selectively to give the corresponding 1-halo-1,3-dienes in excellent yields using a catalyst system consisting of(More)
Depending on the nature of the metal catalyst, omega-hydroxy propargylic acetates choose between alternative cycloetherification manifolds to produce functionalized heterocycles in high yields. AuCl catalyzes the formation of oxacyclic enol acetates, whereas [Cl(2)Pt(CH(2)CH(2))]2 (Zeise's dimer) will induce a propargylic substitution via an unprecedented(More)
