A Broad-Spectrum Synthesis of Tetravinylethylenes

Horvath, Kelsey; Newton, Christopher; Roper, Kimberley; Ward, James; Sherburn, Michael


The first general synthesis of compounds of the tetravinylethylene (TVE) family is reported. Ramirez‐type dibromo‐olefination of readily accessible penta‐1,4‐dien‐3‐ones generates 3,3‐dibromo[3]dendralenes, which undergo twofold Negishi, Suzuki–Miyaura or Mizoroki–Heck reactions with a wide variety of olefinic coupling partners. This route delivers a broad range of unsymmetrically substituted tetravinylethylenes with up to three different alkenyl substituents attached to the central C=C bond....[Show more]
