The first four-fold cross coupling reaction involving alkenic partners leads to the title hydrocarbon on multi-gram scale in one step from commercially available precursors. In stark contrast to its close structural relatives, tetravinylethylene is a remarkably robust, bench-stable compound. The π-bond rich hydrocarbon is shown to undergo one-pot sequences of pericyclic reactions leading to the formation of complex systems with four new rings, seven C-C bonds and ten stereocenters with a very...[Show more]
