Prior examples of hydroacylation to form six- and seven-membered ring ketones require either embedded chelating groups or other substrate design strategies to circumvent competitive aldehyde decarbonylation. A cooperative catalysis strategy enabled intramolecular hydroacylation of disubstituted alkenes to form seven- and six-membered rings without requiring substrate-embedded chelating groups.
