Cycloadditions of Cyclohexynes and Cyclopentyne
Published Web Locationhttps://doi.org/10.1021/ja508635v
We report the strategic use of cyclohexyne and the more elusive intermediate, cyclopentyne, as a tool for the synthesis of new heterocyclic compounds. Experimental and computational studies of a 3-substituted cyclohexyne are also described. The observed regioselectivities are explained by the distortion/interaction model.
