Functionalyzed 2-methoxy-2-alkynylcyclopropanes In Gold-catalysis: An Entry To Heterocyclic Products

The development of novel and more efficient synthetic methodologies in organic chemistry is highly desirable. In the last fifteen years, remarkable transformations have been accomplished taking advantage of the high carbophilicity of gold catalysts, and, particularly, of their high affinity for triple bonds. After disclosing a high-yielding gold-catalyzed procedure to access to the oxepin-2-one skeleton
