Diels–Alder approach to biaryls (DAB): Importance of the ortho-nitro moiety in the [4 + 2] cycloaddition

Author affiliations

Abstract

A series of nitrophenyl acetylenes were evaluated for their utility in a cycloaddition–cycloreversion approach to polysubstituted biaryls. ortho-Nitrophenyl acetylene consistently provided the target biaryls in superior yields as compared to the meta and paranitro substituted variants.
