A photoinduced Wolff rearrangement/Pd-catalyzed [3+2] cycloaddition sequence: an unexpected route to tetrahydrofurans

Author affiliations

Abstract

A novel sequential reaction that combines a visible light-induced Wolff rearrangement of α-diazoketones and a Pd-catalyzed [3+2] cycloaddition of vinyl cyclopropanes with the resulting ketenes is described in this work. Selective O-allylic alkylation was observed over C-allylic alkylation, which unexpectedly led to a series of highly functionalized tetrahydrofurans with high efficiency (20 examples, 58–99% yields).
