Nickel-catalyzed [4+2] cycloaddition for highly substituted arenes

Author affiliations


Nickel(0) catalyzed [4+2] cycloaddition of electron-deficient dienes to alkynes and subsequent aromatization gave highly substituted arenes. This formal inverse electron-demand Diels–Alder cycloaddition is attributed to the formation of a seven-membered nickelacycle from a diene and an alkyne.
