Superelectrophilic nazarov cyclizations with N-heterocycles
Author ORCID Identifier
A series of Nazarov cyclizations has been studied involving N-heterocyclic-substituted 1-arylprop-2-en-1-one derivatives (aza-chalcones). Superacid catalyzed reactions of these derivatives provide good yields of heterocyclic-substituted 1-indanones. A mechanism is proposed involving diprotonated, superelectrophilic intermediates.
