An Efficient Synthesis of Benzazocines by Gold(I)-Catalyzed Tandem 1,2-Acyloxy Shift/[3+2] Cycloaddition of Terminal 1,9-Enynyl Esters.

Abstract

An effective synthesis of structurally diverse benzazocines was accomplished in good to excellent chemical yields (55-82 %) through a gold(I)-catalyzed cascade reaction involving tandem 1,2-acyloxy shift/[3+2] cycloaddition of terminal 1,9-enynyl esters. The reaction proceeds under extremely mild conditions and represents one of the relatively few transition-metal-catalyzed intramolecular cycloaddition reactions for the synthesis of benzazocines.
