Abstract

© 2016 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim. A rhodium-catalyzed asymmetric synthesis of 5,5-disubstituted cyclohexa-1,3-dienes has been achieved by [2+2+2] cycloaddition reactions between diynes and Morita-Baylis-Hillman (M-B-H) adducts as unsaturated substrates. Products containing two adjacent chiral centres (quaternary and tertiary, respectively) were obtained with complete diastereoselectivity and high enantioselectivity (84-97%) through a kinetic resolution of the M-B-H adduct. Furthermore, these highly substituted cyclohexadienes reacted with dienophiles to afford the corresponding Diels-Alder cycloadducts in good yields.
