We have interests in both organocatalysis and metal catalysis (and combinations thereof), with ongoing projects in the group in both areas. Current interests include the application of Gold, Copper, Palladium, Platinum, Magnesium and Iron catalysts2. We also have an interest in the development and application of new boron-centred reagents and catalysts. Recently, we have reported a new method for the generation of boron enolates via the gold-catalysed addition of boronic acids to alkynes1. The intramolecular cyclisation of ortho-alkynylbenzeneboronic acids (A) gives cyclic boron enolates that can be trapped via aldol reaction with an aldehyde present in the reaction mixture. The resulting products are useful for further elaboration into biaryls, phenols or dihydrobenzofurans.
