Alkoxide-directed metallacycle-mediated cross-coupling is a rapidly growing area of reaction methodology in organic chemistry. Over the last decade, developments have resulted in > thirty new and highly selective intermolecular (or "convergent") C-C bond-forming reactions that have established powerful retrosynthetic relationships in stereoselective synthesis. While early studies were focused on developing transformations that forge a single C-C bond by way of a functionalized and unsaturated… Expand
An insight into regioselectivity in the transformation through a ruthenacycle
Ru(0)-catalysed cross-dimerisation of unsymmetrically substituted internal alkynes with conjugated dienes yields two conjugated triene products depending on the regioselectivity of the C–C bondExpand
Synthesis of pentasubstituted 2-aryl pyrroles from boryl and stannyl alkynes via one-pot sequential Ti-catalyzed [2 + 2 + 1] pyrrole synthesis/cross coupling reactions†
This reaction provides a complementary approach to previous [2 + 2 + 1] heterocouplings of TMS-substituted alkynes, which could be further functionalized via electrophilic aromatic substitution. Expand
Synthetic nat- or ent-steroids in as few as five chemical steps from epichlorohydrin.
An advance in chemical synthesis is described that has established an enantiospecific means to access novel steroids with unprecedented facility and flexibility through the sequential use of two powerful ring-forming reactions: a modern metallacycle-mediated annulative cross-coupling and a new acid-catalysed vinylcyclopropane rearrangement cascade.

Asymmetric synthesis of dihydroindanes by convergent alkoxide-directed metallacycle-mediated bond formation.
A convergent synthesis of highly substituted and stereodefined dihydroindanes is described from alkoxide-directed Ti-mediated cross-coupling of internal alkynes with substituted 4-hydroxy-1,6-enynes, defining a convenient, convergent, and enantiospecific entry to fused carbocycles of great potential value in target-oriented synthesis and medicinal chemistry.

Metallacycle-Mediated Cross-Coupling with Substituted and Electronically Unactivated Alkenes.
This perspective discusses early observations in this area, the challenges associated with controlling such processes, the evolution of a general strategy to overcome these challenges, and a summary of highly regio- and stereoselective convergent coupling reactions that are currently available by metallacycle-mediated cross-coupling with substituted alkenes.

Rhodium(I)-catalyzed ene-allene-allene [2+2+2] cycloadditions: stereoselective synthesis of complex trans-fused carbocycles.
Hopes are reported towards the development of an alkyne-free rhodium(I)catalyzed [2+2-2] cycloaddition by using simple alkenes and allenes as the p components, which would enable the construction of multiple bonds and/or stereogenic centers in a single synthetic operation. Expand
Convergent synthesis of deoxypropionates.
While these iterative synthesis strategies to deoxypropionates are powerful and stereochemically flexible, they uniformly suffer from the requirement of long sequences of chemical transformations to construct a complex de oxygenpropionate chain and, as such, suffer from poor step-economy. Expand
