Alkyne hydroacylation: switching regioselectivity by tandem ruthenium catalysis



Alkyne hydroacylation: switching regioselectivity by tandem ruthenium catalysis



Journal of the American Chemical Society 137(9): 3157-3160



By using tandem Ru-catalysis, internal alkynes can be coupled with aldehydes for the synthesis of β,γ-unsaturated ketones. The catalyst promotes alkyne transformations with high regioselectivity, with examples that include the differentiation of a methyl vs ethyl substituent on the alkyne. Mechanistic studies suggest that the regioselectivity results from a selective allene formation that is governed by allylic strain.
