[4+2] and [4+3] catalytic cycloadditions of allenes

Author affiliations


This feature review describes the development of catalytic [4+2] and [4+3] cycloadditions of allenes, as efficient and practical methodologies for assembling six and seven-membered cyclic systems. The different methodologies have been classified depending on the type of key reactive intermediate that was proposed in the catalytic cycle.
