Gold(I)-catalyzed formation of 4-alkylidene-1,3-dioxolan-2-ones from propargylic tert-butyl carbonates.

Abstract

[reaction: see text]. A study concerning the gold(I)-catalyzed rearrangement of propargylic tert-butyl carbonates into 4-alkylidene-1,3-dioxolan-2-ones is described. The mild reaction conditions employed allow the efficient synthesis of a variety of cyclic carbonates that would be less conveniently obtained using reported methods. Variability in the… (More)
