Abstract

An optimized palladium-N-heterocyclic carbene catalyst system effects the palladium-catalyzed bisdiene cyclization-trapping with phenol at the 0.01% catalyst loading level with a TON of 7.6 × 103 and TOF of 280 h-1, values much higher than typically found for this and related carbocyclizations. The reaction scales well and the trans-substituted six-membered ring product is obtained in excellent yield on a 10-mmole scale without further optimization of the catalyst system or reaction conditions.
