Abstract
A sequence comprising a ring-closing alkyne metathesis of a propargyl alcohol derivative, followed by a ruthenium-catalyzed redox isomerization of the derived cycloalkyne and a transannular aza-Michael addition allowed the formation of the distinguishing piperidine-metacyclophane framework of the Lythraceum alkaloid lythanidine in a few high-yielding steps. This application attests to the excellent functional-group tolerance of a molybdenum alkylidyne complex endowed with triphenylsilanolate ligands, which enabled the macrocyclization even in the presence of protic functionalities, and thus illustrates the power of contemporary catalytic acetylene chemistry for target-oriented synthesis.
