Mechanism of nitrones and allenoates cascade reactions for the synthesis of dihydro[1,2-a]indoles

Author affiliations

Abstract

Quantum mechanical calculations (DLPNO-CCSD(T) and dispersion-corrected DFT) are employed to gain insights into the mechanism and selectivity in the catalytic synthesis of dihydropyrido[1,2-a]indoles from the cascade reaction between nitrones and allenes. Implications for controlling diverging pathways is discussed.
