Abstract

Tetrahydrothiophene is an efficient organocatalyst for the synthesis of highly substituted furfuryl products from readily accessible electron-poor enynes under neutral reaction conditions. This process is applicable to a wide range of nucleophiles and enynes and can be used in a domino organocatalysis sequence.
