(3+3)-Annulation of Carbonyl Ylides with Donor-Acceptor Cyclopropanes: Synergistic Dirhodium(II) and Lewis Acid Catalysis
The first (3+3)-annulation process of donor-acceptor cyclopropanes using synergistic catalysis is reported. The Rh2 (OAc)4 -catalyzed decomposition of diazo carbonyl compounds generated carbonyl ylides in situ. These 1,3-dipoles were converted with donor-acceptor cyclopropanes, activated by Lewis acid catalysis, to afford multiply substituted pyran scaffolds in high yield and diastereoselectivity. Extensive optimization studies enabled access to 9-oxabicyclo[3.3.1]nonan-2-one and 10-oxabicyclo[4.3.1]decen-2-ol cores, exploiting solvent effects on intermediate reactivity.
