Oxidative cross-coupling of allenyl ketones and organoboronic acids: expeditious synthesis of highly substituted furans.


Allenyl ketones are employed as coupling partners in palladium-catalyzed oxidative cross-coupling reactions with organoboronic acids. This reaction constitutes an efficient methodology for the synthesis of highly substituted furan derivatives. Palladium-carbene migratory insertion is proposed as the key step in this transformation.
