ABSTRACT

Ruthenium-catalyzed homo Diels-Alder [2 + 2 + 2] cycloadditions between alkynyl phosphonates and bicyclo[2.2.1]hepta-2,5-diene were studied. The observed reactivity was found to be dependent on the presence of the phosphonate moiety. The Ru-catalyzed cycloaddition was compatible with a variety of aromatic and aliphatic substituted alkynyl phosphonates, providing the corresponding phosphonate substituted deltacyclenes in low to good yields (up to 88%).
