Gold- and silver-catalyzed highly regioselective addition of active methylenes to dienes, triene, and cyclic enol ethers.

Abstract

The combination of gold and silver salts catalyzed the addition of active methylenes to dienes, triene, and cyclic enol ethers with high regioselectivity. The catalysis provides a synthetically useful method for functionalized carbocycles and heterocycles through a highly atom-economical carbon-carbon bond formation. [reaction: see text]
