Abstract

Decarboxylative Nazarov cyclization of chiral cyclic enol carbonates proceeded to afford chiral 2-cyclopentenones with excellent chirality transfer under thermal conditions without any catalyst. Interestingly, the thermal decarboxylative Nazarov cyclization furnished the desired product with better chirality transfer than the Lewis acid-catalyzed reaction.
