Abstract

Using the previously designed biphenyl-2-ylphosphine ligand, featuring a remote tertiary amino group, the first gold-catalyzed intermolecular hydroalkenylation of alkynes has been developed. Synthetically valuable conjugated dienyl alcohols are formed in moderate to good yields. A range of alkenyltrifluoroborates are allowed as the alkenyl donor, and no erosion of alkene geometry and/or the propargylic configuration are detected. DFT calculations confirm the critical role of the remote basic group in the ligand as a general-base catalyst for promoting this novel gold catalysis with good efficiency.
