Abstract

The intramolecular addition of both an alkoxy and acyl substituent across an alkene, oxyacylation of alkenes, using rhodium catalyzed C-O bond activation of an 8-quinolinyl ester is described. Our unsuccessful attempts at intramolecular carboacylation of ketones via C-C bond activation ultimately informed our choice to pursue and develop the intramolecular oxyacylation of alkenes via quinoline-directed C-O bond activation. We provide a full account of our catalyst discovery, substrate scope, and mechanistic experiments for quinoline-directed alkene oxyacylation.
