Iron-catalyzed annulation reaction of arylindium reagents and alkynes to produce substituted naphthalenes
Date of Issue2012
School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences
We report here an iron–bisphosphine complex-catalyzed annulation reaction of an arylindium reagent and two alkyne molecules that affords a substituted naphthalene derivative in moderate to good yield. The reaction represents a new example of iron-catalyzed C–C bond forming reactions via C–H bond functionalization.
