Abstract

A Ni-catalyzed intramolecular reaction of diarylthioether-tethered 1,8-diynes gave sulfur-containing tetracyclic compounds at ambient temperature. The transformation was initiated by non-activated sp2C-S bond cleavage along with consecutive alkyne insertions. A double intramolecular reaction of a tetrayne and an intermolecular reaction of monoynes were also available, and the corresponding polycyclic compounds were obtained. Moreover, the obtained cycloadduct showed photo-catalytic activity in benzylic oxidation.
