Nickel-Catalyzed [2+2+2] Cycloaddition of 1,2-o-Carboryne with Alkynes

  • Zaozao Qiu
Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


Reactivity studies showed that 1,2-o-carboryne can react with alkenes, dienes, and alkynes in 0[2+2], [2+4] cycloaddition and ene-reaction patterns, similar to that of benzyne. The carboryne reactions are usually complicated and not in a controlled manner. On the other hand, nickel-1,2-o-carboryne complex (η 2-C2B10H10)Ni(PPh3)2 can undergo regioselective [2+2+2] cycloaddition reactions with 2 equiv of alkynes to afford benzocarboranes.
