An η(2)-aldehyde nickel complex was utilized as an effective activator for an organosilane in order to generate a hypervalent silicate reactant for the first time. This method was successfully applied to the highly efficient syntheses of 3-aryl-, vinyl-, and alkynyl-2,1-benzoxasiloles from benzaldehydes with aryl-, vinyl-, and alkynylsilyl groups at the(More)
A nickel(0)/chiral N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC)-catalyzed fully intermolecular, enantioselective [2 + 2 + 2] cycloaddition of two enones and an alkyne has been developed to access enantioenriched cyclohexenes. A single diastereomer was obtained with a successive generation of four contiguous stereogenic centers. The absolute configuration of cyclohexene(More)
N-Phosphine oxide substituted imidazolylidenes (PoxIms) have been synthesized and fully characterized. These species can undergo significant changes to the spatial environment surrounding their carbene center through rotation of the phosphine oxide moiety. Either classical Lewis adducts (CLAs) or frustrated Lewis pairs (FLPs) are thus formed with B(C6 F5 )3(More)
Chemists no longer doubt the importance of a methodology that could activate and utilize aldehydes in organic syntheses since many products prepared from them support our daily life. Tremendous effort has been devoted to the development of these methods using main-group elements and transition metals. Thus, many organic chemists have used an(More)
The nickel(0)-catalyzed carbonylative cycloaddition of 1,5- and 1,6-ene-imines with carbon monoxide (CO) is reported. Key to this reaction is the efficient regeneration of the catalytically active nickel(0) species from nickel carbonyl complexes such as [Ni(CO)3 L]. A variety of tri- and tetracyclic γ-lactams were thus prepared in excellent yields with 100(More)
Tricyclic furan derivatives with multiple chiral centers are ubiquitous in natural products. Construction of such tricyclic scaffolds in a stereocontrolled, step-economic, and atom-economic manner is a key challenge. Here we show a nickel-catalyzed highly enantioselective synthesis of hydronaphtho[1,8-bc]furans with five contiguous chiral centers via(More)
Direct amination of allylic alcohols with primary and secondary amines catalyzed by a system made of [Ni(1,5-cyclooctadiene)2 ] and 1,1'-bis(diphenylphosphino)ferrocene was effectively enhanced by adding nBu4 NOAc and molecular sieves, affording the corresponding allyl amines in high yield with high monoallylation selectivity for primary amines and high(More)
