Abstract

Cascade reactions are an important strategy in reaction design, allowing streamlining of chemical synthesis. Here we report a cascade Suzuki-Miyaura/Diels-Alder reaction, employing vinyl Bpin as a bifunctional reagent in two distinct roles: as an organoboron nucleophile for cross- coupling and as a Diels-Alder dienophile. Merging these two reactions enables a rapid and operationally simple synthesis of functionalized carbocycles in good yield. The effect of the organoboron subtype on Diels- Alder regioselectivity was investigated and post-synthetic modifications were carried out on a model substrate. The potential for a complementary Heck/Diels-Alder process was also assessed.
