Highly enantioselective synthesis of silahelicenes using Ir-catalyzed [2+2+2] cycloaddition

Author affiliations

Abstract

Silahelicenes, which contain two silole moieties in a helically chiral structure, were synthesized by a chiral Ir-catalyzed intermolecular [2+2+2] cycloaddition of tetraynes with diynes along with a Ni-mediated intramolecular [2+2+2] cycloaddition. The photophysical properties of the obtained highly enantiomerically enriched silahelicenes (up to 93% ee) were also measured.
