Novel platinum-catalyzed tandem reaction: an efficient approach to construct naphtho[1,2-b]furan.

Abstract

An efficient approach to synthesize naphtho[1,2-b]furan has been developed via platinum-catalyzed tandem reaction. This new tandem catalysis induces a cycloisomerization of allenyl ketone, followed by a 6pi-electrocyclization-type reaction of carbene intermediate. The metal carbene proved to be an effective intermediate in the 6pi-electrocyclization-type reaction.
