Recent applications of tricarbonyliron-diene complexes to organic synthesis
Abstract: The present review describes some of our recent applications of tricarbonyliron-diene chemistry to organic synthesis. It focuses on the selective synthesis of tricarbonyliron-diene complexes including the asymmetric catalytic complexation of prochiral cyclohexa-1,3-dienes, the enantioselective synthesis of carbazole-3,4-quinone alkaloids, and the iron-mediated synthesis of corannulene and yohimbane alkaloids.
