Asymmetric catalytic intramolecular hydroacylation of 4-substitutedpent-4-enals to β-substituted cyclopentanones


The catalyst, [Rh(S,S-Me-duphos)(acetone) 2 ] + , rapidly and efficiently converts 4-substituted pent-4-enals bearing primary and secondary substituents to the corresponding cyclopentanones and for a variety of substituents the ee was found to range from 93 to 96% at 25 °C.
