Abstract

It has been established that an electron-deficient CpErhodium(III) complex catalyzes the oxidative [4+2] annulation of substituted arenecarboxylic and acrylic acids with alkynes under ambient conditions (at RT–40 °C, under air) without using excess amounts of substrates to produce the corresponding substituted isocoumarins and α-pyrones in high yields. Minor modification of reaction conditions depending on the coordination ability of alkynes realized the high efficiency.
