Cyclization/Hydrogermylation of Functionalized 1,6-Dienes Catalyzed by Cationic Palladium Complexes


Journal Article

A 1:1 mixture of the palladium phenanthroline complex (phen)Pd(Me)Cl and NaBAr4 (phen = 1,10-phenanthroline; Ar = 3,5-C6H3(CF3)2) catalyzed the reaction of 4,4-disubstituted 1,6-dienes with trialkylgermanes at 80°C in 1,2-dichloroethane (DCE) to form R3GeCH2-substituted cyclopentanes in good yield with high trans selectivity.
