Abstract

Synthesis of δ-lactones from 2-alkynyl epoxides and 4-alkynyl-1,3-dioxolan-2-ones by palladium catalysed carbonylation and conjugate nucleophilic addition was investigated. The stereocontrolled conjugate addition of nucleophiles to the electron deficient 2,3-double bond of allenes gave γ,δ-unsaturated δ-lactones in the case of lithium dimethylcuprate. It was found that the palladium catalysed carbonylation of alkynyldioxolanones and alkynyl epoxides proceeded in good yields under very mild conditions.
