A new article at Adv. Synth. Catal. is already available on-line


We are very glad to share here that our article at Adv. Synth. Catal., entitled "Cobalt-catalyzed Intramolecular Cycloadditions of Alkenylidenecyclopropanes with Alkenes and Dienes" and authored by E. Da Concepción, I. Fernández, J. L. Mascareñas and F. López, is already available through the journal website.

Abstract: Low-valent cobalt complexes equipped with phosphorous type of ligands can promote the intramolecular (3+2) cycloaddition of alkylidenecyclopropanes (ACPs) with alkenes and with allenes. Dienes can also be used as partners, but they afford seven-membered cycloadducts. The reactions are fully diastereoselective and, in some cases, we also observed moderate enantioselectivities, especially when using chiral phosphite ligands
