Abstract

Furans and pyrroles were prepared via the gold(I)-catalyzed
alkyne hydration of diynes. The use of [Au(IPr)OH] as
precatalyst in a silver-free protocol permits low catalyst loadings
and in situ generation of the active cationic gold species. A
detailed computational study confirmed the experimental results
and supports the proposed mechanism
