In this paper we report the rearrangement of spirocyclohexadienones into dihydrotropones in basic conditions as a new method for the preparation of seven-membered ring ketones, which are key building blocks for the synthesis of tropoloalkaloids. DFT calculations and deuterium labeling...

The first metal-catalyzed [6 + 3] cycloaddition of tropone with azomethine ylides has been developed. With the use of a chiral ferrocenylphosphine-copper(I) complex as the catalyst, the asymmetric variant of the [6 + 3] cycloaddition has also been successfully achieved....

A concise approach to the core skeleton of the welwitindolinone alkaloids was developed on the basis of sequential cycloaddition reactions. First, a palladium catalyzed enantioselective [6 + 3] trimethylenemethane cycloaddition onto a tropone nucleus was used to generate the requisite...

Efficient synthesis of 3,4-diazabenzo[b]tropone was first achieved utilizing 4pi-8pi sequential electrocyclic reactions of functionalized benzocyclobutenone derivatives. These compounds are highly electron deficient and readily form amine adducts at ambient temperature. Furthermore, gentle heating resulted in quantitative nitrogen extrusion to produce...
