Highly efficient Rh(I) and Ir(I) single and dual metal catalysed dihydroalkoxylation reactions of alkyne diols

Ho, Joanne H H; Hodgson, Richard; Wagler, Jorg; Messerle, Barbara Ann


A highly efficient rhodium(i) and iridium(i) catalysed dihydroalkoxylation reaction of alkyne diols is employed here for the synthesis of spiroketals and a fused bicyclic ketal. The two metal catalysts show differential selectivity and efficiency for either the cyclisation of the 5-exo or 6-endo-membered rings. For the first time, a dual metal (Rh and Ir) catalyst system is effectively utilised for the formation of the 5,6-spiroketals, more efficiently than the single metal catalysts. The two...[Show more]
