Abstract

The full details of investigations into the regiochemistry and stereochemistry of iron-catalyzed carbocyclizations of 2,7,9-decatriene derivatives to form five-membered carbocyclic ring systems are described. The roles of the allylic substituent, the alkene geometry, diene substitution, and the influence of resident stereogenic centers incorporated in the tether chain connecting the reacting 1,3-diene and alkene subunits are discussed.
