Bispericyclic transition states appear when two independent pericyclic transition states merge into one. They are a particular case of the more general ambimodal concept applied to a transition state that connects reactants with two or more products involving reaction path bifurcations through valley-ridge inflections. In the present computational work, the(More)
In a first step toward the rational design of macrocyclic structures optimized for CO2 capture, we systematically explored the potential of 30 five-membered aromatic heterocycles to establish coordinating complexes with this pollutant. The interactions between the two moieties were studied in several orientations, and the obtained complexes were analyzed in(More)
We used M06-2X/Def2-TZVPP to calculate a broad set of rigid interaction profiles between CO2 and 30 different aromatic heterocycles, based on pyrrole, furan, and thiophene with ring positions subsituted with up to four nitrogens. For each system, several orientations of the fragments were explored to both find the preferred interaction mode and have(More)
An unexpected ring expansion converting hydrindane cores into decalins has been observed. The process occurs under very mild conditions and with exquisite transfer of chiral information. The ring expansion provides access to decorated decalins with complete stereocontrol. The reaction mechanism is studied in order to gain insight into the underlying causes(More)
Gold(III)-catalyzed cycloisomerization of α-bis(indol-3-yl)methyl alkynols selectively affords 1-(indol-3-yl)carbazoles, in a transformation that takes place through a selective 1,2-alkyl vs 1,2-vinyl migration step in the vinyl-gold intermediate generated from the initial 5-endo-spirocyclization. The reaction proceeds well with either tertiary or secondary(More)
Similar to propargylic carboxylates and sulphides, 3-propargylindoles undergo 1,2-indole migrations under cationic gold(I) catalysis. The intermediate Au-carbenoid complex may evolve through different pathways depending on the substituents at the propargylic and terminal positions of the alkyne moiety. Thus, 3-indenylindole derivatives were easily obtained(More)
Density functional theory is applied to the study of the oxygen atom transfer reaction from sulfoxide (DMSO) to phosphine (PMe3) catalyzed by the [MoO2]2+ active core. In this work, two fundamentally different roles are explored for this dioxometal complex in the first step of the catalytic cycle: as an oxidizing agent and as a Lewis acid. The latter turns(More)
