’Rh’oad crossing: A cationic RhI/(cod)2 complex catalyzes the chemo-, regio-, and stereoselective title reaction with electron-deficient alkenes leading to substituted 1,3-dienes. The analogous three-component cross-addition involving isocyanates instead of alkenes has also been developed.
Prof. Tanaka form Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology has been reported the unprecedented transition- metal-catalyzed chemo-, regio-, and stereoselective three- component cross-addition of silylacetylenes, alkynes, and alkenes, thus leading to substituted 1,3-dienes.
