N-Heterocyclic carbene-catalyzed enantioselective synthesis of functionalized cyclopentenes via α,β-unsaturated acyl azoliums

Abstract

Highly enantioselective NHC-organocatalyzed synthesis of functionalized cyclopentenes proceeding via α,β-unsaturated acyl azolium intermediates is reported. The organocascade reaction of modified enals with malonic ester derivatives having a γ-benzoyl group involves the Michael–intramolecular aldol-β-lactonization–decarboxylation sequence to deliver cyclopentenes in good yields and excellent ee values.
