Catalyst-dependent selectivity in sulfonium ylide cycloisomerization reactions

Author affiliations

Abstract

Divergent catalysis is an emerging field whereby access to structurally diverse compounds from a common precursor is achieved through controlled reaction pathways. Herein we present an unusual example of π-acid catalyst dependent selectivity in the cycloisomerization of alkene-tethered sulfonium ylides. Computational mechanistic studies revealed how the ability of palladium to cycle through oxidation states largely controls the selectivity.
