Accessing fused and spirocyclic ring formations via carbon - carbon bond activation
Carbon-carbon bonds are ubiquitous in synthetic chemistry and constitute the skeletal backbone of a significant number of compounds. Utilizing transition metal mediated catalysis, a wide array of fused and spirocyclic ring systems containing diverse functionalization were accessed. These investigations provide unique ways to prepare carbon frameworks that are otherwise nontrivial to construct using classical approaches. The derivatives were rapidly accessed through optimized methods.
