Olefins possessing tethered β-functionalised phosphonate functionality have been shown to be effective cyclisation partners within intermolecular Pauson-Khand processes. The optimised protocol described facilitates intermolecular cyclisations with high levels of olefinic regiocontrol.
- alkyne complexes
- β-functionalised phosphonates
- Pauson-Khand reaction
