Ruthenium(II)-catalyzed chemoselective deacylative annulation of 1,3-diones with sulfoxonium ylides via C–C bond activation

Abstract

The first successful example of deacylative annulation of 1,3-diones with sulfoxonium ylides was achieved through Ru(II)-catalyzed C−C bond activation. The excellent chemoselectivity and broad substrate scope render this method a practical and versatile approach for the preparation of (hetero)aryl and alkenyl substituted furans, which are valuable units in many biologically active compounds and functional materials. A preliminary mechanistic study reveals that this process involves a deacylative α-ruthenation to generate the key alkyl Ru(II) intermediate with release of a benzoic acid fragment.
