Abstract

Treatment of trienones 1a-g with BF3·OEt2 at -78°C followed by warming effected Nazarov electrocyclization followed by 6-endo cation-olefin cyclization. The resulting tertiary carbocations underwent elimination to give olefinic products 2, intramolecular hydride transfer to furnish enones 3 and/or 3+2 ring-closure providing tricyclic products 4. Use of TiCl4 in place of BF3·OEt2 led in most cases to a mixture of enones 3 and chloride- trapping products 7.
