Intramolecular 4+3 cycloadditions. Vinylthionium ions from allylic alcohols
Review articleOpen access

AbstractAldehyde 9 can be prepared from ethyl pyruvate in several steps. Treatment of 1 with various diene-containing Grignard reagents results in the formation of the corresponding allylic alcohol in good yield. Exposure of these alcohols to triflic anhydride results in the formation of 4+3 cycloadducts in good to excellent yields. Furan and simple butadiene trap the intermediate allylic cation efficiently in the formation of 5,7-fused ring systems. A tethered thiophene undergoes only intramolecular Friedal-Crafts alkylation.
