Build/Couple/Pair Strategy Combining the Petasis 3-Component Reaction with Ru-Catalyzed Ring-Closing Metathesis and Isomerization
Publication: Research - peer-review › Journal article – Annual report year: 2012
A “build/couple/pair” pathway for the systematic synthesis of structurally diverse small molecules is presented. The Petasis 3-component reaction was used to synthesize anti-amino alcohols displaying pairwise reactive combinations of alkene moieties. Upon treatment with a ruthenium alkylidene-catalyst, these dienes selectively underwent ring-closing metathesis reactions to form 5- and 7-membered heterocycles and cyclic aminals via a tandem isomerization/N-alkyliminium cyclization sequence.
