Structure assignment of lucentamycin E and revision of the olefin geometries of the marine-derived lucentamycins.

Nickel-catalyzed reductive cyclization of unactivated 1,6-enynes in the presence of organozinc reagents.
The transition-metal-catalyzed cyclization of 1,6-enynes is one of the most convenient and efficient methods for the synthesis of a variety of carbocyclic and heterocyclic compounds. By this
Enantioselective reductive cyclization of 1,6-enynes via rhodium-catalyzed asymmetric hydrogenation: C-C bond formation precedes hydrogen activation.
Mechanistic studies involving hydrogen-deuterium crossover experiments, along with the observance of nonconjugated cycloisomerization products 14c and 15c, suggest rhodium(III) metallocyclopentene formation occurs in advance of hydrogen activation, and should play a key role in the design of related hydrogen-mediated couplings.
