A highly stereoselective aza-[4 + 2] cycloaddition of chiral cyclic 2-amidodienes with N-sulfonyl aldimines is described. While this Lewis acid promoted heterocycloaddition provides an efficient strategy for constructing optically enriched isoquinuclidines, it is mechanistically intriguing. The cycloaddition favored the endo-II pathway in the absence of a(More)
A strategy for synthesizing highly functionalized cyclohepta[b]indoles through a concise (4 + 3) cycloaddition-cyclization-elimination sequence is described. The cycloaddition features nitrogen-stabilized oxyallyl cations derived from epoxidations of N-aryl-N-sulfonyl-substituted allenamides, while the cyclization and elimination employed an intramolecular(More)
Electrocyclic ring opening of 4,6-fused cyclobutenamides 1 under thermal conditions leads to cis,trans-cyclooctadienones 2-E,E as transient intermediates, en route to 5,5-bicyclic products 3. Theoretical calculations predict that 4,5-fused cyclobutenamides should likewise undergo thermal ring opening, giving cis,trans-cycloheptadienones, but in this case(More)
